Which *NIX you prefer
Simple question. Which *NIX you prefer.

Disillusionist 02-16-2011 01:37 AM

Is this based on Home or Work?

You seem to have missed System V Unix

crabboy 02-17-2011 03:36 PM

and you missed AIX which is based on System V

Disillusionist 02-17-2011 04:30 PM

I assumed that the poll related to types of *NIX environment as there are far too many specifics to list in any poll

fbsduser 02-18-2011 04:45 PM

I was referring to the "popular" *NIX OSīs for home computers.

I can't vote because you don't have Minix in the poll. :(

I use linux. Anyone else notice that the thread starter's name is fbsduser and they list opensuse and freedos and they voted for osx? That's funny!

MrCode 03-16-2011 10:27 PM

Err...seriously? How can you expect to get unbiased votes on a Linux forum? Of course, I'll go Linux, since it's the one I've had the most experience with. I've messed around a little with *BSD and OI/OSOL, but they just seem...odd to me. :scratch:

I am a Slackware user and Linux is proudly not Unix, so it shouldn't be included in the list.

*nix ... I'd have to say OpenBSD. And AIX as a close second. And in dead last I'd say Solaris.

I'm a Linux user who's dabbled in other *nixes-- a few BSD's and OpenIndiana. I could be wrong, but it seems like the other *nixes are behind. They have their niches, but Linux seems more feature rich and mature.

Microsoft Xenix... Tandy 16b/6000/6000HD.


'It aint your daddy's *nix!'

Oh wait...

Yes, it is! :p

Linux, because of good hardware support.
