  1. Laboratory Facilities Department of Computer Science University of Saskatchewan 2005-06

  2. Platforms • Computer Scientists must be able to master many platforms during their careers. • Laboratory experience will necessitate the use of more than one software platform and as many hardware platforms as we can manage.

  3. Software Platforms • Two kinds: Open Source and Commercial. • Open Source: NetBSD, Linux • Commercial: Windows, Solaris, MacOSX Server • Coming soon: Mac OSX clients
