Rick,
our datamover works in the same exact way on Windows and Linux. Having the possibility to choose a preferred platform is something that gives our many customers to use what they prefer.
One "why" for using linux repos however is when the final storage is an NFS share: since proxies cannot write directly to smb, you need a gateway server. Linux can mount an nfs share via fstab as a regular mount point, on windows nfs can only be mounted in userland, thus is cannot be used by our datamover that runs as system.
Other than that, as said, is a matter of preferences (and some scenarios like a failover cluster where I personally prefer linux servers, but again is MY personal taste, not a suggestion as Veeam employee)

Hey i found a installation guide for cent os 6.5.
Link: http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/ ... repository

I installed it last week with cent os 7. Some commands had changed in the new cent os version but the backupjobs are running fine at the moment.
