Best Unix?

Telco is a very big market, but both HP and Compaq are very big players in 
that market. IRIX may survive, but in a very small niche. The next company 
that might have some trouble is Sun. While McNeely has made some very 
brilliant decisions, he may now be somewhat of a liability. Sun will 
survive and continue to be a major player, but their dominance on the Unix 
marketplace may be over.
