With is better to learn UNIX: Solaris or freeBSD?
I have already a very stable dual boot, Windows XP SP1 and RedHat 9, all configured OK and my GeForce4 Ti4200 works flawlessly in both OSs.
I just downloaded Solaris 9, 4 ISOs. I just want a goot UNIX system to learn from... I need to know UNIX, since I want to work in the corporate level. I study Computer Cience here in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.
Do anyone here have any experience to lead me in the right way: learn from Solaris or freeBSD? I already have 3 HDs: one is Windows, other is Linux and the new one, I wish to install a "pure" UNIX system, and learn from it.
Any sugestions? freeBSD, Solaris.... or both? Are they that different, with one has better free documentation, etc?
Thanks for any reply!
PS.: nvidia always awesome... linux and now freeBSD drivers are far beyond anything the competition had come with yet. Keep up the good work!
PS2.: could any of those drivers run on Solaris 9 x86? =]
Well if you have the time learn both. I think Solaris is more popular as I think it has more marketshare. Though with this SCO lawsuit who knows Unix could go OpenSource too, and you won't need to bother.
I haven't seen Solaris 9 x86, but if it is anything like previous Solaris x86 versions the list of supported hardware is pretty short. Solaris is more significant in the corporate IT world then Linux or *BSD, however my recommendation would be to learn everything. Install FreeBSD on that spare harddisk of yours and try to get an old Sun Sparc box to learn Solaris.
thanks for the help folks!
Any more suggestions?
