My (no defunct) company went through a similar search as you. What we
found was some very good and very expensive software, primarily ported to
Suns, and some reasonably good and reasonably inexpensive software,
unfortunately ported to XP. Perhaps others can suggest something that
combines the XP-like cost with (some of the) UNIX-like features. Due to
cost reasons we ended up with the XP stuff. Hope you find something that
matches your needs.
