Maximum DB Size with Linux and SAPDB

Hello Linuxusers,
we plan to install a SAP BW. 
We are now thinking over 2 alternative solutions:
HP UX/Oracle or Linux/SAPDB. 

I have now heard that one of the major diadvantages of the Linux solution is a limited database size which is related to the fact that SAP supports at the moment only 2.2.x kernels with 2GB max Filesize. Does anybody have the facts ready how large the difference between the 2 solutions is?

Mit freundlichen Grüssen
