BSD vs S5 vs MACH vs OSF/1 (no religion, please!)

Post by James Si » Fri, 18 Jan 1991 23:20:54

Are there some *obvious* reasons (aside from the 'name') that C= (Commodore Amiga) choose to implement ma bells version of UN*X rather than Berkeley or
MACH or OSF/1,(especially the latter)?

Are there obvious things i'm gonna love/hate about the choice?

Please reply by email & I'll summarize...

thanks in advance,


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. lockf function call...

3. ATI Mach 64 informations, then ATI vs Diamond vs Miro, Zappa vs Alladin.
