We're actually moving away from unix based systems. It is felt that there is more support and integration between server applications in the MS products.Im against picketing, but I dont know how to show it.
November 20th, 2005, 01:20 PM #30Might not be the best out there, but sure is the easiest. Also, nothing in the *nix world can compare to Active Directory. Only eDirectory from Novell is in the same league.

At home my desktop is windows only cause of gaming, limited hard drive space, and most of the applications I need for school are windows only. My laptop is dual-boot windows and slackware, but I haven't booted windows in a while. I've got another slackware only desktop machine that i use for serving and just screwing around on.
At work we've got 5 servers: one Xserve G5 running OS X, one x86 running Solaris, and 3 x86s running windows 2003. On my workstation I dual boot windows and slackware. Our client network as a whole mostly consists of windows machines (maybe 150), and then we've got maybe 20 Macs, a few sun machines, and I think we've got an old SGI workstation somewhere.

Nope, haven't switched. No need to. I even have a stack of Ubuntu CDs stuffed in a box around here somewhere.

I tried Mandrake but just couldn't get that interested. Many reasons.
lack of easily available documentation
lack of user friendliness
lack of coordination between programs
strange names on programs, commands etc [not very intuitive]
extremely difficult to administer, often falls back to command line
Linux may get there some day but not yet.“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

Haven't tried any Unix/Linux yet, but if I get my hands on a spare computer, I'll probably experiment with it. I'm intrigued to see how it works.

Oh and there is the 20-something megs of documentation you can opt for during install but then again... that's just too darn difficut to figure out
(image from Drake 9.2 still running flawless from the day installed)
There are hundreds of topics covered in depth in the documentation that accompanies nearly every Linux distribution and even more readily available online.
