> Well it kind of depends on how your accessing the Unix system. Does it
have X forwarding set up which would allow you a graphical interface (in
which case you would use the xstata executable), or are you using a telnet
type client which would limit you to a command line (in which case you would
use the stata executable). One limitation of the later is that you will
have difficulty displaying graphs (although a work around was provided
earlier today on the list, so check out the archives).

under Windows. There are a few caveats such as Stata for *NIX recognises
the ~ to mean your personal root directory amongst other things. One thing
you won't be able to do if you are restricted to the command line

get your hands on, check with your IT department if they have a copy
(failing that you could purchase it from the Stata bookstore).

have no problem migrating to Stata for *NIX.
