So, attempting to extract some context from your question to provide a better answer, I'll attempt to go two routes:

1) "Is RedHat Linux mandatory..."; and 2) "Is RedHat OpenStack mandatory..."

The short answer to these questions, is that no, no specific Linux or OpenStack distribution is required to become an expert. That being said, some familiarity with Linux will give you a good foundation for working with OpenStack. Additionally, an OpenStack distribution will help ease the learning curve associated with learning OpenStack.

There are plenty of OpenStack distribution independent resources available (the #vBrownBag and OpenStack Cookbook among them).

Hope this helps.

Full-Disclosure, I am associated with both the OpenStack Cookbook and the #vBrownBag podcast.

OpenStack runs on Windows, too. Search around this site, questions like this one should give you enough to get started.

The main contributors of Hyper-v support for OpenStack (Cloudbase) have tools and some documentation on their website.
