Linux catching up to commercial Unix

article here [news.cnet.com]
Looks like Linux is starting to hold it's own against some of the commercial Unix systems out there in some respects. Time to have a little "coming of age" party for our open source friend.

"True high-availability clustering options for Linux remain in their infancy," the study said

Maybe, but I've had a 5-node cluster up and running for 203 days straight without a problem... if that's 'infancy' I can't wait for 'maturity' :)

You can download the "Executive Summary" (they want cash for the actual study...) at D.H. Brown Associates [dhbrown.com] web site. It's an interesting read, though I would have liked to see more variety in their selections. Slackware, still a very popular distribution, wasn't included. As far as I could tell, only distributions supporting Intel processors were included, which excludes such distros as YellowDog.

They also have a "strictly UNIX" study as well. This includes Solaris, HP-UX, Tru64, AIX, and UnixWare.

Kinda disappointed to not see any of the BSDs anywere.

They do have an interesting site, but be prepared to give 'em info about yourself before downloading anything (and each time you download something new.)
