I was involved with a superconducting qubit setup where we had a compiler written in python that converted a DSL to binaries that were loaded onto an FPGA, which generated control signals and read out results that streamed over pci/e. The system that this ran on ran windows but that was basically inconsequential. Linux has basically nothing to do with quantum computing other than it may be the preferred environment for some researchers to work in.
