[20100413] Unixes of the world unite!
I've stumbled about this presentation by Unix (co)pioneer Robert Pike, which he gave in 2001. Some hilights:

  • ``What is UnixTM?

    [...] Those operating systems derived from or inspired by the Research Unix systems of the 1970.

    Includes [...] NetBSD [...] and others.''

  • ``1. What is the best thing about Unix?
    A: The community.

    2. What is the worst thing about Unix? A: That there are so many communities.''

Read the whole presentation for an overview of the things that Unix got right and wrong. Definitely worth reading!
