Linux and FraminGo
Linux is not FraminGo's friend!
We have programmed a couple of times for linux. It has always been a lot of effort and showed few results.
Linux has a pell-mell organization of C-libraries and the installation of programmes is chaotic, concerning the directorys in which applications and their data are placed.
As of this writing linux installements are still in most cases neither able to create a simple programme icon on the desktop nor can they create a folder on the desktop with links to operate and configurate the application.
We are in the year 2017. Get out of the command line history! We don't have this mentality anymore!
... ok, but linux gives you a good server - and it's cheap!
Yes it's cheap! For whom?
We have installed quite a few linux servers. We admit they run stable, but that's something I expect anyway.
NT/W2K and OS/2 servers do it as well.
Here is our example. Have fun...
It is no Problem under NT/W2K or OS/2 - By no means we are worshipping Bill G.'s holy grail!
By the time the heroes of command line and picky version numbers, who were busy for ages with versions below 1 e.g. 0.xxx and now reached 9.something, finally end up with a usage and functionality like Win95 (after all 22 years old, how much is that in computer generations?), we will love to take another look on it!
P.S. Exceptions only confirm the rule - some linux based islands are worth to be mentioned. We have to admit, that these special applications based on linux do a really great job: IP-Cop Router, Asterisk IP-Telephony
