A Final Word on Network Operating Systems

Although this chapter certainly isn't an exhaustive study of network operating systems, I think you can see that there are quite a number of choices. Each NOS definitely has its own set of pros and cons.

You need to do your research before you select an NOS. Take a look at your network needs, your user base, and also your budget. If you are looking at a basic network with file and print services, you have a number of options, including NetWare, Windows 2000 Server, Linux, and Unix. If you want DNS and DHCP to run on the same server that provides file services, you've narrowed your choices to Windows, Linux, and Unix. If you are looking at Web hosting and using Web applications, NetWare jumps back onto the list and provides an alternative to Unix.
