Opinions Wanted: Solaris 2.4 vs. AIX vs. HP/UX vs AT&T Sys5v4

Post by EMAPI » Wed, 26 Apr 1995 04:00:00

We are presently evaluating UNIX file servers for nationwide distribution
and retail centers. The following vendor platforms are in the race:

IBM RS6000     AIX 3.2.5
HP       9000     HP/UX (not sure of the version, I think 9 or 10)
SUN    1000      Solaris 2.4
AT&T   3450      System 5v.4 (modified, I think)

Anyone performed a similar evalution or have opinions, please let me know.



1. Linux vs OS2 vs NT vs Win95 vs Multics vs PDP11 vs BSD geeks

        Every machine and operating system has got its useful

        I see no point in argueing with people which OS is better, and
which is worse, and what will survive and what wont...

        The bottom line is obviously the best OS is the one that make
the end user most productive.    Ive used quite a variety of software
from intel, ibm, MS, sun, GNU, DEC/compaq, etc,   and everything OS
has got its UPz and DOWnz, so depending on what you want to do with it
yer machine, probably determines what OS you run.

        So lets cut to the chase -  OS bashing is a waste of time,
and most of the time I'd say the person putting it down just hasn't
seen that particular OS's potential,  or should I say speciality....

      Hell,  Plan 9 has even got some interesting features.. <snicker>

       And all PC users know,  that no matter what use on a day to day
basis on the PC, that one day you will need to boot good ole ancient
DOS to do something...

2. Cable Modems & Linux

3. Opinions wanted: HP vs SGI vs SUN

4. XF86401+KDE2+TTFonts?

5. mmap + wrapping around to 0

6. SCSI Card driver problems

7. Multiple & vs. && and | vs. || bugs in 2.4 and 2.5

8. compare Solaris vs. HP-UX vs. other UNIX

9. SunOS 5.6 vs Solaris 2.6 vs Solaris 7 vs Solaris 8

10. Perfomance: tar vs ftp vs rsync vs cp vs ?

11. Slackware vs SuSE vs Debian vs Redhat vs ....
