The Fermi Unix environment -- Dealing with adolescence

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Fermilab`s Computing Division started early in the definition implementation and promulgation of a common environment for Users across the Laboratory`s UNIX platforms and installations. Based on the authors experience over nearly five years, they discuss the status of the effort, ongoing developments and needs, some analysis of where they could have done better, and identify future directions to allow them to provide better and more complete service to their customers. In particular, with the power of the new PCs making enthusiastic converts of physicists to the pc world, they are faced with the challenge of expanding the paradigm to non-UNIX ... continued below
