Error Where can I get sun for intel?


I wanted to get Sun Solaris 9 for NT. I went on the SUn.com site but I couldnt exactly locate the link. Anyone has an idea?

There is no such thing as "Solaris for NT". Solaris is a complete operating system. Solaris 9 is available in beta form only. Click the "Solaris 9" banner on the sun.com home page. Solaris 8 is available for download. Click the "Downloads" button on sun.com

Sun has discontinued the downloads of Solaris 8 for Intel. You may now only buy the media pack, but it's only $45 USD.

Just keep reading the forums for the most popular Unix variants on Intel...

Some are:
Linux (Literally hundreds of varients of Linux)
Anything in the BSD family (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD...)
SCO (Now caldera) Unix

Those are probably the most popular ones right there...

About the Caldera alternative, is is possible to download the Unix versions they 'inherited' from SCO and Novell?
I have got a 'non-commercial license' - but can't seem to be able to download the system itself?

No, but you can get the media fairly inexpensively...

Look for your product...

I guess SCO OpenServer is what I'm looking for.

What I really want is to see that

Unix System V (C) Bell Labs - thingy come up

Guess I'm a bad proponent of Free SoftwareSmilie
