The "core difference"---nothing. That's why Java is "write once, read anywhere".

The main difference is; you need to install different builds of java and possibly your IDE.
After that, it is much the same.

I use Linux to develop, primarily because this is our target platform for production systems.

zius oram,

have you done any research on Java? The whole point of Java is to be platform independent. Within reason, there are zero differences between any OS.

If you are going to deploy your work mostly into *ix servers then it's better for you to get familiar with a similar platform

I am currently doing a project (and have done simlar projects in the past) where we are developing Java software on Windows while the production system will be running the software on Linux.

There is almost no difference in the way Java software runs on Windows or Linux.

Ofcourse, as in any serious project, you have to thoroughly test it on a system that's identical to the final production system, so we're also testing the software on Linux, but for the development of the software itself it doesn't matter if you do it on Windows or Linux. We're using Windows for development because the client's standard desktop computers are configured for Windows.
