Hi, we have a small network at my job.
We have 16 computers most are Win95, 4 are Win98, and the Server is WinNT Terminal Server Edition ((Beta Version))
Yes this Beta Version of Terminal Server has been running fine for 6 months. That server has given ALL 16 clients Internet Access, and not one of those clients has a modem.... it's all done through the Terminal Server. And all 16 clients are running Office 97, and not one copy of Office 97 has been installed on any Win95/98 client... again... it's all done through the Terminal Server. OK, I'll stop praising the NT Terminal Server!!!
The Questions are:::
Does Linux have this kind of power??
I triple-booted the server Win98/NT Terminal Server/Linux 5.2... but I know next to nothing about Linux. ((I installed it using Linux for Dummies!!))
Will Linux run Office 97???
Can Linux allow a client to use Word 97,
even though Word 97 is not even installed on the client???
I don't even know how to read a floppy disk in Linux!! Is there a floppy icon somewhere, or what??
I've heard about the rise of Linux, mostly because it's FREE!! But putting the money part aside... is Linux a superior operating system, if YES,then WHY????
Thanks much.... C-Ya!!
