Hello, I had to upgrade a Pentaho to server to latest version, so I decide to install a new version to testing.

I have a Debian Wheezy virtual machine and I make this steps:

1. Install Java:

apt-get install openjdk-7-jre-headless

2. Download and execute Business Analytics Platform:

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/pentaho/files/Business%20Intelligence%20Server/5.2/biserver-ce-
unzip biserver-ce-
3. Access to the web interface with "admin" user:


I have some newby quiestions:

1. Is Debian a good OS to run Pentaho?
2. Is OpenJDK good Java software? Is better to install Oracle Java?
3. The web interface is different that we have, is it possible to change it? Themes?

I will appreciate any help, this is my first Pentaho installation.
