Unix Capabilities?

We are looking into buying a new software, billing software that is, and want to know if you can run that on the same UNIX server as another major software?

Is there a limit to the different types of software Unix can run, or is it like windows where you can install as many as you like?

Thanks in advance.

1. There are several kind of Unix (Sun, HP, AIX, SCO, Linux, etc.). The software should be built for one of those Unix platform. If the solftware you're buying required Solaris then you would need Sun Solaris.

2. That depends on your software. If the software allows you to run on as many servers then you can do that. Some software company use license control that only allow you to run on the server you paid for.

The GCC compiler is a cross-platform compiler and, for programs written according to standards, you can compile software across different architectures and processors.

See http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/gcc.html

for a list of supported platforms.
