UNIX Application Migration Guide

UNIX Application Migration Guide illustrates guidelines and best practices required to port existing UNIX applications to the Windows environment, which can potentially reduce the time, cost, and risk associated with a traditionally painful migration process.


Based on the experiences encountered by Microsoft consultants working in the field as well as external organizations that have migrated from UNIX to Windows, this guide is designed to give you the best information available about the issues that you are likely to face if you are contemplating or have decided on integrating your UNIX and Microsoft® Windows® operating system environments. This guide covers planning and practical issues involved in migration or co-existence between UNIX and Windows and provides a review of the different ways in which such a migration can be done. Ideal for both UNIX programmers as well as Windows programmers, this is a valuable source of information for anyone looking to take advantage of the Windows platform.
