This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I see that it's your very first post here, a brand new Greenhorn
I think the Operating System in question is the least important, their creators strive to create IDEs in a way that they work pretty similar among different platforms. Having said that, I'd recommend to you the IDE you are most familiarized with, or believe you will benefit more in your area, the one most used in the market.
If you a beginner with both IDEs, you should know that Netbeans facilitates the process a little bit, especially if you download the version that already contains the Application Server Glassfish since the JSF required libs are built-in on the server.
It's what I can tell you now, try to choose the IDE you're more familiarized with, independently of OS. I'll soon begin programming JSF on my Mac, and if I get something more to tell you, I'll return here.
