I am trying (desperately) to decide between which package to buy for
personal use (and to recommend to friends).
What are the differences in the implemenation of Linux itself between
the two. For example, RH5.0 has made the transition to glibc from libc.
is the same true of Caldera's implementation?
If I get RH5.0, can I ever expect to run Netscape SuiteSpot and/or
ApplixWare on it?
Finally, is there even a version of the Netscape Server Software for
Solaris x86? Are there any Office suites for Solaris x86? This seems to
be the least well supported of the PC Unixen .... (IMHO).
Having used Solaris on SPARC, I would prefer to buy Solaris x86, but
experience suggests that Linux would be a better choice (at least for
now) due to better application and device support. Now the questions
becomes, which Linux?
I want to:
Get better at Perl
Do Java Programming (later on)
Have a Basic Office suite to write/store documents
Play with a SQL Database (i.e. PostGres)
Run the Netscape Suitespot Servers
Learn EMACS even better
I am trying to supplement the Windows NT system at home with a UNIX
system for my personal use (to use as a teaching tool for personal
development). I would appreciate any help in making the correct choice
(If you do reply, please remember to de-spam my address).
