No doubt Linux as the server is any day better than doing the same in 
doze but in this case, the main target users are ones who use Tally. 
These are not very big organizations but they are many in volume. These 
users do not have dedicated machines for Tally. They simply run it along 
with all the software for daily (mis)use. They keep screwing up the 
systems and are facing regular breakdowns but they keep a daily or 
weekly backup of their data and after the systems are up again, they 
simply restore it and use their systems again. Such users will not want 
to invest in separate machines just for trying out a 'free equivalent' 
of Tally. This is just like getting doze users hooked on to Firefox, 
OpenOffice, and other fossies for doze, before they take the plunge into 
Linux.
