2. What parameters differs in Windows and Linux for Oracle?
Oracle on Windows and Oracle on Linux are essentially the same thing. They have no difference to the end user. Over 90% of your DBA tasks don't have a difference either. Where they do differ is your interaction with the OS, and the instance's interaction with the OS.
For parameters in your INIT.ORA, you won't notice a difference except in how you specify paths to file names. In Windows, a file's path will be preceeded by a drive letter and a colon, i.e. 'D:'. In Linux, each path start with just a slash, i.e. '/'
