I am considering learning more about UNIX: how to install it;
configure it; use the various utilities; basically, get up to speed on
the OS. However, I have a question that YOU may be able to help me
Since I did not want to invest much money in this after hours project,
I was set to choose Linux as the UNIX flavour. However, with the
recent SCO annocement regarding FREE copies of SCO Opendesktop to
certain people (me being one of them), I no longer am certain of which
OS to use. My kit for this project is a 486-66 with 16MB RAM, T3-SVGA
video card, 1GB EIDE hdd, etc.
I want command line capabilities, X windows, a good selection of
development tools and utilities, a wish to use some public domain UNIX
programs, JAVA, etc.
So then, any thoughts on which OS would suit be needs and hardware?
