Hi...I've been trying to determine a good Unix to buy for my needs.
After talking to a few vendors and mail order places my head is now
First off: Do I need a developers system? All I'm really interested
in is compiling sources off of the net and some small time C coding
of my own little utilities, etc. Not interested in developing for
X or other graphical environments, databases, etc.
I assume a C compiler is included with all base system Unices?
If not, there's GCC (which I'd install anyways) but are there libraries
with it as well?
Basically other than compiling net sources I want NFS(Server/clinet) and
TCP/IP capabilities which seem to be an extremely expensive add on, atleast
for SCO. (695+695!!!)
From what I can gather, there are a few free X window environments on the
net already, so is there any reason to pay extra for one?
I'm not interested in running graphic applications, but it would be nice
to have resizable shell windows with mouse support to move them around,
Any idea what vendor I should check out? I'd like to spend less than $900
for base system+TCP+NFS. I'm a student so some place with an edu discount
might be nice as well.
Sorry if I sound so green...:) Thank...Charles
