By jkke ·
why do some say that win os's 95/98/nt will be phased out within the next few years and that unix would be the superior os.
frankly i do not see anything special about linux!!!

Some are being over optimistic. Linux is a very good, and stable OS. But it has at least 2 years before the average home computer user will be able to realistically use it. Now on the server side it is a different story. Companys are always looking to save money. Well Linux, while not really free like most like to say, is very cheap. Plus once setup will run, and run, and run. The same can not be said for Microsoft OS's.

I've been using Linux (Admn) for the past 2 years.I've also used DOS, WIN3.1/95/98/NT, AIX, HP-Unix, QNX & Sun OS . I strongly suggest to use one from the Unix varients. It's because the MS OSs have crashed many times( and they'll continue to do so). MS has stoped the development of Win9x versions, now the one comming up
Win 2000 is network based. For smooth performance it needs P III processor with 128MB RAM. In the other hand Linux will run smoothly on a 486 (even 386) & on a pentium machine with a good Graphics card, one can have a nice Xserver. Even more Linux is a freeware.

Personaly I find linux rather easy to use, but I started playing with UNIX back in ** before there were a lot of kids and web pages and all. Now days few peopl even know what gopher is or how to use it. I think promoting linux will also promote people to leant how and why their computer works, the National Average intelect in the US is much lower than other equal countries, and it's a shame. Living in the US isnt all it use to be and maybe Linux can make it better (I can dream cant I )

This is a very very good question. Each OS has its own pros and cons. Certain points that clarify this issue are as follows:

1) The GUI presented by UNIX presently is not match for the ones provided by NT/95/98.
Although people claim KDE for Linux tobe as good as Win95. But the catch phrase is as good as and not better.

2) Unix is much more stable than 95/98/NT. The Legendary Blue Screen Of Death has been seen by more men than the Star Wars Series.

3) Linux is Open Source code which allows people to write custom modifications according to their needs. The catch here is that most of the Development of Linux has been done by Hackers and leisure workers. When it comes face on face with the Industrial requirements it stands to pass the test.

4)95/98/NT support most of the RAD tools that are widely used in the development of applications. I have yet to come across any RAD tools for UNIX or Linux.

5) Another important thing in favour of 95/98/NT is the huge reach of Microsoft and its being eas
