Checkpoints core products run on Solaris, Linux, AIX and Windows. Not
sure why you think that they are completely a windows centric company.
Core product, yes. But you're still stuck with their GUI-based rule
Yup. I worked for a place that basically did Checkpoint consulting
work. We ran linux virtually everywhere including our CP boxes(SPLAT
being based on old RH), but found despite a few things that ran in
Linux, we flat out couldn't do our jobs without Windows.
I ended up running SmartDashboard in Win2k within Vmware on my Slackware
They're a strange company. Their core product runs on Linux, but the
end-user stuff is essentially all Windows. I guess they figure most
people admining it can't handle something else?
