Linux ServerWatch writes about the slow but sure death of UNIX by the onslaught of Linux and customers moving from older proprietary UNIX systems to commercially supported open source enterprise Linux distributions. "Linux does have one killer feature that is driving the switch: lower cost. Many companies are discovering Linux to be extremely attractive from a cost perspective. Take the experience of Sabre, a travel company that replaced Solaris with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) running on x86 machines, resulting in lowering costs 90 percent (with a three-fold speed gain to boot). These potential cost savings, which include hardware maintenance costs savings, are not to sniffed at."

"May I ask a question?"

No , your the only one here who has lost that right for eternity ... What ? It was worth a try ...

[/q]Overall, how is this sub-thread likely to benefit the world? [/q]

Your gonna come along and not bother rewriting history to fit your lies ...

"I, personally, do not see how it is likely to."

Your right let's stop all the GNU/Linux supercomputer because you personnally don't see there value at being able to do there work properly with a better OS... on second thought let's switch them all to a BSD OS ...

These Linux vs *BSD threads are, in my opinion, non-constructive.

Yes let's all get guns and shoot at each other's because frankly we are all extremist moralistic fanatics with an axe to grind because our OS is not a mainstream one ... Wait GNU/Linux is a mainstream os ...

They hurt all communities involved.

No , some of us can waste some people on extreme futility and still have a main stream OS ...

" We need to learn ... remember that we are"

Learning what a troll is migh helps , it's not someone you have a disagreement with ...

we are, essentially on the *same* side.

I am still waiting from your side on the code you actually have that is still not Free Software and being easily able to incorporate in GNU/Linux under the GPL. Still waiting on that 200 million for KDE and 200 million for GNOME from your side ...

And walk away from these silly and useless exchanges.

Yet you are here participating in them ...

I am gonna use the best reply that no BSD's as ever followed :

You first.
