Greetings great Afrik-ites:
Having been operating in the lurking mode for some time, I could not
resist the temptation to contribute to this discussion.
I quite agree with Nemo that Linux is consistently faster than the
WinX, what I was not sure of was the figure - Now I know it is 4:1 Thanks Nemo.
General Data Engineering Services runs a full TCP/IP Intranet in Nigeria, with UUCP link to the
Internet for email. The network is built around Linux, and it is very
stable. Getting to grips with the software was quite easy. With about
50 single user clients, and 10 multiuser mail clients, the network is
poised to grow.
Scripting, flexible accounting, etc are some of the benefits - but it
does take some learning.
If I need to setup another network, it definitely will be Linux.
BTW: Jeff Thanks for those beautiful reports. When are you coming to
