Re: [ldm-users] Windows and LDM replacement

Ive got to echo Robert here... Windows is a major tradeoff of stability.

It also kind of flies in the face of the open source nature of the entire 
ingest system. Not that windows is real expensive.

I find it hard to believe the objectives couldnt be met with an upgrade
to the current ldm base.

Subject: [ldm-users] Windows and LDM replacement

I have never heard of any demand for LDM to run under Windows, I imagine 
since any Unidata Windows users use IDV or possibly a few McIDAS users and 
don't really need LDM since they have ADDE, et. al...

Can Unidata make the case to current users why Windows support is needed?  I 
think for most of us Windows means Java..and that's a scary thing 
considering what we need the LDM to do.

Also, is Unidata REALLY prepared to support an LDM-type application on a 
platform like Windows that (no matter cool it may be in many ways) simply 
can't match the stability of UNIX/Linux for things like this?  I can't 
imagine the myriad of problems.

Just food for thought..
