Solaris 10 is out and FreeBSD 5.3 is out. I have read reviews from osnews.com, slashdot.org.... I just want to know what is the best "unix" or "unix-like" operating system according to you for desktop and server or workstation.....
I know the "best" word is very loosy...
Unfortunately I haven't try BSD and Solaris because lack of time. However I am happy with my Gentoo and Windows XP.
I tried out many Linux distros, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris 9 and Darwin, and currently I'm using Linux (Debian on PC and Slackware on laptop), cos I think it's absolutely the best.
I think BSD systems are extremely good, but some kind of strange under some aspects (I mean, for desktop users, for whom Linux rocks!).
Solaris... uhm... awful? Terrible installation, pathetic hardware support, CDE as default interface, generally old...
Let's use Linux!!!
