Linux -- Snort is pretty much designed to run on Linux (Unix, osx, etc.)
 It's functional, on Windows, but there are things that don't work on it.
 For instance, things like barnyard, shared object rules.. etc.

Same thing goes for Solaris, No shared object rules.

I am saying, out of the three, Linux is not only the recommended way to go,
but also the easiest way to go for a beginner.
