Unix History

The other day I saw a reference to this great history of Unix. It’s Chapter 2 from Eric Raymond’s The Art of Unix Programming. I hadn’t read it for some time and enjoyed it all over again.

Many—or maybe even most—Irreal readers weren’t around in the early Unix days and they should definitely read this history. It’s an important part of our shared heritage and a reminder that before Linux there was Unix and a wonderful culture that went with it.
