I have an old Pentium 266… I’ve been trying to decide on qnx or linux (not *bsd) for it… I intend to use it as a file-server (basic spare IDE drives), hooked up to a router with my other systems… I want it to achieve these goals:
speed and a gui… if I want info on something I want a graphical web browser to find it, etc etc… I’ve already tried the 6.2.1 iso as a livecd, and it looks good so far
stability & reliability… the system probably won’t really be under heavy load, but I don’t want to have to reboot it often or worry about it crashing and corrupting data (no raid).
ability to share files to windows and linux clients
That’s really about it… I’m an intermidiate linux user, and I’d have no problem setting up linux on it, but I would like to try qnx if it will meet these goals.
