Looking for Information on a certain UNIX?
UNIX – /yoo’niks/ Plural “Unices”. An interactive time-sharing operating system invented in 1969 by Ken Thompson after Bell Labs left the Multics project, originally so he could play games on his scavenged PDP-7. Dennis Ritchie, the inventor of C, is considered a co-author of the system. By 1991, Unix had become the most widely used multiuser general-purpose operating system in the world. Many people consider this the most important victory yet of hackerdom over industry opposition.
What Is UNIX?
UNIX is a computer operating system.
History of UNIX
An operating system is the program that controls all the other parts of a computer system, both the hardware and the software. It allocates the computer’s resources and schedules tasks. It allows you to make use of the facilities provided by the system. Every computer requires an operating system. UNIX is a multi-user, multi-tasking operating system. Multiple users may have multiple tasks running simultaneously. This is very different than PC operating systems. UNIX is a machine independent operating system. Not specific to just one type of computer hardware. Designed from the beginning to be independent of the computer hardware.
Linux Linux /lee’nuhks/ or /li’nuks/, *not* /li:’nuhks/ /n./ The free Unix workalike created by Linus Torvalds and friends starting about 1990 (the pronunciation /lee’nuhks/ is preferred because the name `Linus’ has an /ee/ sound in Swedish). This may be the most remarkable hacker project in history — an entire clone of Unix for 386, 486 Pentium, Alpha, and Sparc machines, distributed for free with sources over the net. The secret of Linux’s success seems to be that Linus worked much harder early on to keep the development process open and recruit other hackers, creating a snowball effect. “Linux is a free Unix-type operating system originally created by Linus Torvalds with the assistance of developers around the world. Linux is an independent POSIX implementation and includes true multitasking, virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, proper memory management, TCP/IP networking, and other features consistent with Unix-type systems. Developed under the GNU General
Solaris – Sun Unix-based user environment, including the Unix operating system and an X11-based window system. Solaris 1.x is a retroactive (marketing?) name for SunOS4.1.x (x>=1), a BSD-like version of Unix with some SVR4 features, along with OpenWindows 3.0. Solaris 2.x (which is what most poeple mean by “Solaris”) includes SunOS5.x, which is an SVR4-derived Unix, along with OpenWindows 3.x and tooltalk. [
