Yeah, I know their rather cheap on e-bay these days. I just figured I'd ask =). I need to pick me up one although I'd really rather have an octane if I can afford it =). I have an old challenge S but they didn't come with video and I'd really like to have an SGI griaphic workstation =)

I've been using Unix in various forms since around 1990. I currently prefer Debian GNU/Linux and OpenBSD, depending on the application. At work I currently support HP-UX and Linux.

At previous jobs, I've done most of the common flavors of Unix, including Ultrix, OSF/1 (err, Digital Unix (err, Tru64)), SunOS, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, SCO (BLECH! PTOOEY! HISSS!), NCR's "MP-RAS" (which is really SVR4), Sequent's Dynix. I haven't played with IRIX much, but I did have to remotely login to one and look at their printer configs. Looked like vanilla SysV printing.

Out of the commercial Unices, Solaris is probably the least appalling, but they all fall desperately short of a modern free BSD-based or Linux/GNU-based release.

There can never be enough UNIX threads on this board. I sure don't want anyone to get the impression that the Mac represents this place.

Linux - My favorite. I use Debian "unstable" on my desktop and my laptop.
FreeBSD - Use it at work and installed it on my laptop for testing.
Solaris - Use it when working on university servers and workstations.
BSD/OS - Use it every now and then when I help at the place where I used to work. I wish it were FreeBSD.

It does seem to be a bit tilted to the Mac side of the force, but there are still us Linux/Unix geeks and even some Windoze geeks. I am a crossplatform geek, although I don't have much occasion to use a Mac, I still don't mind them...

This may be a good time and place to suggest some light reading: In the Beginning was the Command Line by Neal Stephenson.

Excellent. Gotta admit, I probably would've overlooked that one. My network at home consist of Holly, Lister (currently in suspension, as it were), Rimmer, and Cat. A fifth machine, were I to get one, would be Kryton. Number six would be Kochanski. I've been thinking about loading VMWare on Rimmer (which is my primary workstation at home) and naming the virtual machine Ace. Similarly, if a second "personality" (VMWare or dual-boot) were to go on Cat (a laptop), then it would either be Dog or Dibley.

I'm afraid not. Just checked the website, and the latest news regarding the movie is from last July. Last May, they were talking of a possible release for this summer, but since we haven't seen any trailers, I'm guessing not. On the other hand, DVDs of the series will start being released this November.
