Thanks to the many people who sent their views on this. To summarize
very briefly 

1. both the VMS and UNIX versions of GCG seem fine in terms of performance,
   ease of use etc.

2. it is recommended that you go with the one where you have the best
   administration experience.

3. regarding choice of OS, external considerations seem to matter more
   than merely the running of GCG; e.g. the experience of your users,
   other software you want to run, how UNIX or VMS fit into the rest
   of the environment at the site.
