    We use NT4 and HP Unix for our servers. It's getting more & more difficult to justify a $600,000 Unix machine over $100,000 8 way Dell W2k system for non-critical DSS systems. People will keep trying to use scalability argument, but NT systems are cheap enough to replace them every 2 or 3 years. Obviously it's different for VLDB's or huge mission critical OLTP systems, but for general business data marts / DSS, NT is perfect.

    No doubt there's plenty of people who will disagree

    Even we use HP/UX 11i for our environments.

    HP is used mainly for the production environment (VLDB,OLTP), while we have some machines running NT for old backoffice applications developed with VB, ASP and things like that, installed and never upgraded.

    Another couple of environments we use are SPARC Solaris and AIX, but nothing of these in production, all in dismission

    I believe that now that Linux is supported as platform the cost factor for low-end sistems will make the difference and talking with other collegues they agree with this: linux is (slowly) substituting NT machines.

    Hope not to raise flames for this...

    I'm using RH Linux on a AMD(Intel) with Oracle 8.1.7 - for development only. Will soon upgrade to Suse Linux Oracle 9. Very pleased with Linux as a OS for development.
