True, but Sun Solaris is open source code now. They are using linus type progrms in addition to their own and allow them freely to be used. Sun Solaris is UNIX, I understand that point, but if they utilize all the progrmas that linux has to offer and has their own technologies in the *nix basis, why not look at them as another source for our needs? I will be honest, I hate Microsoft. I was tired of getting bent over by them. I joined the linux community. However, Seeing as I am trying out anything other than MS, I am going to try out Sun Solaris next to see what they bring to the table. What the "communities" are lacking is a unified step to bringing a clear and true competitor face to face with Micorosft windows in the PC world. If we could, linux and unix, work together, we would bring a whole new game to the table. What we need is for Red Hat/Fedora, Suse, Mandrake, Solaris, and the counbtless others to branch all the basics together, and come out with a genralized open source code that works with any of them, and is as "user friendly" (as in point and click) as windows, but for the reduction of price when it comes to the PC. If we, in all the *nix communties, came together and stood as one unified cause, we could take over the, popularly termed as: MSBS system. I believe Sun is ready to do this. Finally, they seem on the ball. Can I suggest that some of you die hard LINUX users try this out to atleast test it and see if it is a good OS? I am going to switch over to it within the next week. I want to learn how to use it. Also, so I am up to date, could the admin or any other special person email me my username and password for this group? jhbumby@.com. It is automatically entered in my linux system, but I want to continue my conversations and experiences with all of you, Raw and Grinler, who have been quite helpful and whom I owe my Linux life to. That would be great. Thnaks again guyes, and I will be soon back to you on my Sun Solaris system. Over and out,
