Using UNIX Systems

UNIX systems and software

The University of Delaware's central, general-purpose, Solaris (UNIX) systems—Copland and Strauss—are used for many academic activities including course work, text processing, and scholarly research. Copland is used for e-mail, newsgroups, and web browsing; Strauss is used for work that involves programming.

Faculty, staff and students can access the University's UNIX operating systems in any on-campus computing site or from your own computer, either on or off campus.
