Reading people talk about Unix sucks; StarOffice to be free
send my emotions quite high. Tey try to make Unix something
I think UNIX has a lot of obvious strengths. Beyond the
technical strength of many small programs all the same, UNIX
is an ecosystem. In an other environment, someone might
propose an integrated solution of the
packaging/library/language problem ... but it would likely
be offred as the solution. If it is wrong, the whole
ship sinks. In UNIX people are trying everything, and they
all have to fail for the ship to sink.
I guess we should be a bit patient, and take a look
around at what people are doing. Some people might have
solutions that work within the UNIX environment.
