    Hi
    I was wondering if someone could tell me where I could get a copy of UNIX or Linux from.

    Thanx

    Many computer mags (eg APC) include a copy of Linux on their cover disks.

    If you just want a copy, there is:

    http://www.copyleft.co.nz/
    https://www.drfloppy.co.nz/


    Or you could try your nearest Linux User Group:

    http://www.lug.net.nz/

    Or you could download the disk images from the company/group that makes them & burn them if your very patient.

    Or someone on this group might run you off a copy.


    If you want to buy a supported copy you could try a company, eg:

    http://www.redhat.com/
    http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/
    http://www.lycoris.com/

    Or a local computer store might have a copy. Dick smith sell Mandrake, but they are usually old versions.

    I noticed my local bookshop had a wee booklet with a CD set for Mandrake 9 Linux. $18 or so. This is one of those booklets which apear in tha magaziibne section of bookshops. Looks OK.

    You don't want a "real' Unix. The industrial strength ones are not as nice to new users. (I believe Sun give away the X86 version of their SunOS Unix for private use).

    1. Bid for a copy on www.trademe.co.nz
    2. Try www.copyleft.co.nz
    3. If you want a boxed set try www.everythinglinux.com.au

    I use Solaris at work, and as Graham says it's "not as nice to new users" I know pretty much all I need to use on it and nothing else... nasty piece of equipment LOL I'd love to learn more though, but I guess it's not something I'll ever need (or even have).
