"Well, it was all Open Source, before anybody really called it that."
Brian Redman, 2003
UNIX is the oldest active and growing computing culture alive today.
From it`s humble roots in the back room at Bell Laboratories, to today`s
global internet infrastructure - UNIX has consistently been at the core
of major advances in computing. Today, the BSD legacy is the most direct
continuation of the most successful principles in UNIX, and continues to
lead major advances in computing.
Why? What`s so great about UNIX?
This lecture aims to prove that UNIX history is surprisingly useful (and
fun) - for developers, sysadmins, and anyone working with BSD systems.
