let's see what photographers are using
maybe if u have more than 1 system, do state, eg Mac for processing, Unix for backup, etc....
System 1: XP home
System 2: Win2k + Win98
Mac OS X is UNIX.
me not mac user....so for this OS X, it is UNIX architecture only right? or the user can actually use UNIX commands? and the other design also UNIX?Originally Posted by oeyvind
eg, os x got the su thing? need to mount device like in unix? got shells?
or users cannot use any hints of unix but a pretty interface?
pardon me, i haven't got the privilege to use the famous OS X before
In OS X there's a Terminal app which opens a bash shell where you can do Unix commands, including su, etc which you mentioned. Even perl, etc are available. Tho it's a BSD subsystem I wouldn't really consider OS X Unix tho.
But generally, you don't really get hints of a Unix/BSD system.
Like it or not it's UNIX-based, and Apple is the world largest UNIX shipping vendor.
What you think the Supercomputer cluster at Virginia Tech is running on?
A UNIX timeline/family tree here: http://www.levenez.com/unix/
If you want to see how your Mac OS X is actually been boot up in verbose mode, try holding down command-v (sorry for the mistake earlier, V key works only for very old Mac OS X) key after you press power on... ^^
Anyway, if you are technical inclined, read this nice article from an ex-colleague: http://www.kernelthread.com/mac/osx/
Now, back to the topic, running Mac OS X 10.3.7

The base for OS X is UNIX.Originally Posted by Paul_Yeo
Abit different, but if u noe Linux, u are more-or-less there.
I ran Linux in the past (another PC runs Windows mostly for games and MS Word). Last year I got a Mac and have been using it since. I find the interface friendly and most importantly for me, it's has a UNIX based core. The Linux knowledge I have can be transferrred to OS X.
Fedora Core 3
Alright, we know you are running Dual G5 with 2GB ramOriginally Posted by oeyvind
btw, what is the command to show the above in Linux?

mmm… didn't have a choice for VMS
In that case, just classify as WinNT 5.X, Unix Sys V and Unix Sys VII.Originally Posted by Paul_Yeo
Running WinNT 5.0 anyway.
wah you run vms at home???? eh obsolete liao. no tru64? or is that obsolete too?Originally Posted by hwchoy
win 2000 pro and win NT at work..
Mac OS.X after work!
i do editing on both systems.
Debian GNU/Linux at home.. secure, small (300MB total install with compiler and X windows), fast and robust, unlike windoze.
It's basically Linux. One of the distributions called RedHat changed their business strategy and renamed their freely downloadable version to Fedora.Originally Posted by Paul_Yeo
