Malware behaves drastically different depending on the operating system it is executed on. Some malware may only function on Windows Server based operating systems; whereas other malware may only work on specific Linux kernel versions. Malware that is installed on a Windows Vista host may crash the system completely, while the same malware installed on a Windows 7 system might join a botnet command and control channel. It’s a necessity to have a variety of operating systems available when analyzing malware.
