hmm there is no single operating system today that is called UNIX. So you must either be referring to one of it's more direct descendants (i.e. FreeBSD), or a UNIX standard compliant OS . Clarifying which would help :)

If its going to be a really large application etc, consider a BSD... most likely FreeBSD...

If you're looking for something easier to manage and with more 'community' support (yes, yes, bring on the flames ;)), consider Linux.

The differences are not that widespread.

Sun Solaris vs Linux 14 years 8 months ago #5588

To be more clear, it is decision between Sun Solaris and Linux.

We are looking for cons( System management, Security ) of Sun Solaris.

Leaving all financial differences to get the best platform for the application. System management and security are the two big issues for us.

Thanks in advance.
