 Unix Systems Programming
BSD Unix (4.4) sytems programmer handbook, where they explain all the services offered by the operating system to the programmer: signals, file systems, memory management, processes...
Before starting, a little justification: here we will talk about C. Systems Programming in Unix is done in C, not at all in Pascal, Prolog or Basic (in spite of the fact that there are compilers for those languages also :-).

 Microsoft to Highlight Unix Services in Windows Server R2
Bill Hilf, the head of Microsoft's Linux lab, is planning to talk up during his LinuxWorld session on Wednesday the elements of Microsoft's Services for Unix subsystem that the company is integrating into R2.
The Network File System (NFS) client, NFS Server, User/Name Mapping, Telnet Server & Client, Password Sync and NIS Server components of Services for Unix are all present in the Windows Server 2003 R2 builds," said Hilf, in response to one of the Slashdot questioners.
Microsoft officials have said to expect R2 to ship with three UNIX interoperability components, specifically, Microsoft Services for NFS, the SUA subsystem, and Identity Management for Unix subsystem. /article2/0,1995,1845380,00.asp?kc=MWRSS02129T...   (915 words)

 O'Reilly Network -- Mac Security: Identifying Changes to the File System
Talk of Macintosh rootkits is less credible than Elvis sightings, but as we are at heart running a Unix system, a generic Unix rootkit could be deployed on your Macintosh.
Access to your system so that they can cover their tracks as they hack into other peoples computers.
When you use a Macintosh, or indeed any Unix-based system, it's comforting to know that your computer is more secure than Windows. /pub/a/mac/2005/10/07/mac-security.html   (735 words)

 The Andrew File System (AFS) at the ICTP
In the very near future, the Unix file system currently in use to store the users' data (NFS - Network File System) will be replaced by AFS (Andrew File System).
In addition, MacIntosh users will be able to access the files and folders of their UNIX accounts in the same way they can access others in the Apple Talk network.

While Unix has achieved a level of ubiquitousness unparalleled in information systems, the fact remains that with hundreds of different flavors of Unix, getting a handle on the operating system is no easy feat.
The Shellcoder’s Handbook is far from the first book to talk about holes and weaknesses in applications and operating systems; it is just simply the best.
It seems the norm to see a new version of an operating system or kernel every couple of years, and to expect that today's latest thing will be outdated in a short time. /articles/books   (273 words)

 The unity of Unix Tech News on ZDNet
Unix detractors invariably talk about the fracturing of Unix and refer disparagingly to what they call the "Unix wars" of the 1980s, but in reality even the most widely divergent Unix products generally differed in implementation detail and hardware support, not in concept.
The computer science side of the turf wars that took place at MIT during the early 1960s run up to the Multics development decision wanted the system to act as a focal point for the development of a community of users with openly published source code.
Of these, Linux is fundamentally still what it set out to be: Freax (pronounced freeux), a free Unix for the 386; the BSDs continue the research heritage while powering four million new Macs a year; and Solaris is leading the migration to next-generation Unix by implementing true network computing on the Plan9 model. /2100-9590_22-5806608.html   (923 words)

 Linux and the UNIX Philosophy - Book review
In 1994 Mike Gancarz, the author of Linux and the UNIX Philosophy, persuaded Digital Equipment Corporation to fund a visit to the United States by Linus Torvalds to talk about his project.
Linux and the UNIX Philosophy is the result: a book that shows "how Linux addresses the computing needs of the new millennium in new, exciting ways while preserving the tenets of the original UNIX philosophy".

 Quotes about Operating Systems
UNIX is an operating system, OS/2 is half an operating system, Windows is a shell, and DOS is a boot partition virus.
When you get an error message, go to the help system and look up the exact words in that message to see if there was enough of a concept of an architecture that they have a consistent vocabulary to talk about what's broken.
In 1971 when I joined the staff of the MIT Artificial Intelligence lab, all of us who helped develop the operating system software, we called ourselves hackers. /quotos.html   (1513 words)

 Managing Digital Music Metadata with Perl
Note how one has duplicate information, and the other has spaces (which makes handling the file on Unix-like systems more painful).
Also, the former has a filename longer than 31 characters, which is a problem on one of the operating systems I use, yet doesn't tell you the position of the track on the album.
This can actually be a sensible second step; in the demo with the talk, I first take information from m3u and apply it to ID3, then take the ID3 information to manipulate the filename. /perl/id3s/notes.html   (1513 words)

 Trusted Matters: An Interview with Chad Hanson
Trusted operating systems have for many years been based on high-end UNIX platforms such as Trusted Solaris, AIX and HP-UX.
Chuck Talk was fortunate enough to have a conversation with Chad Hanson, Manager of the Trusted Operating Systems Lab at Trusted Computer Solutions in Urbana, Illinois.
All of those systems have undergone, at one point or another, the same standards of rigorous testing and evaluation to meet the requirements to merit being deemed a trusted OS. /article.php3?article=8741   (1513 words) Compare Book Prices ›› Mastering Windows NT Server 4, Seventh Edition with CD Rom

Steve Bourne's description of the talk: The talk begins with the early days of UNIX from the speaker's own experience at Bell Labs and discusses some of the key advances made including the shell.
The shell is a principal part of the operating environment of the UNIX Operating System.
Bourne is also the author of "The UNIX System", one of the better books on UNIX. /archive/2004/lxny.14.October.txt   (1051 words)

In the same way we can say NeXT is not unix, Irix is not unix, but Solaris, SunOS, HP-UX, and AIX are all unixes,, and Linux is unix, Gnu's Not Unix is unix too.) most unixers will have a hard time to articulate clearly what is unix. /Writ_dir/macosxtalk20020524/117.txt   (1913 words)

UNIX was not shown but part of Atari’s UNIX team was present to talk to developers about Atari’s UNIX strategy and the features the system would offer.
Anyway, according to that article Atari planned two versions of the TT, a desktop and a tower version, which was called the TT/X. The memo also outlined the features of Atari’s upcoming UNIX operating system.
Atari also announced at the show, that the version of UNIX they were showing was not going to be shipped. /~darknerd/tech68k/atari_asv.html   (1610 words)

 Internet Relay Chat (IRC) History - How Invented, Jarkko Oikarinen
Partly inspired by Jyrki Kuoppala's "rmsg" program, and partly by Bitnet Relay Chat, Oikarinen decided to improve the existing multi-user chat program on OuluBox called MultiUser Talk (MUT), written by Jukka Pihl, itself based on the basic talk program then available on Unix computers.
During the summer of 1988, Oikarinen was working at the university Department of Information Processing Science, where he administered the department's Sun Unix server "", running on a public access bulletin board system called OuluBox.
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is the most widely used Internet chat system, and as seems often to be the case with Internet technologies, was developed by a graduate student, this time from Europe, named Jarkko Oikarinen at the University of Oulu, Finland. /r/ri_irc.htm   (454 words)

 Salon The unknown hackers
Instead, in December 1993, there came 386BSD 1.0, a revised version with new internal interfaces, allowing the individual components of the operating system to talk to each other more cleanly and efficiently.
Not many Linux-come-latelies know this, but Linux was actually the second open-source Unix-based operating system for personal computers to be distributed over the Internet.
Like its predecessor, 386BSD Release 0.0, Release 0.1 comprises an entire and complete UNIX-like operating system for the 80386/80486-based AT Personal Computer." /tech/feature/2000/05/17/386bsd/print.html   (454 words)

 Linux-on-Itanium effort gets more backing CNET
The Trillian project is a big factor in the future success of Linux, as companies try to push the operating system to the loftier position occupied by the closely related Unix operating system.
Trillian members currently are chiefly hardware companies: Intel, VA Linux Systems, SGI, HP and IBM.
"We work very closely with Intel on several things, but we're unfortunately not able to talk about the Trillian project," Miller said in an interview. /...+effort+gets+more+backing/2100-1001_3-234199.html   (454 words)

 Wintel World
I now own a PC, and while it's not as nice as a Mac, it can do more neat tricks :) I just put together a custom system that has twice the amount of everything that I could've got in a Mac for the same price.
If it says I'm online, just use the UNIX program, 'talk', to talk to me. There are 'talk' programs for the Mac and PC also.
Many people who work in the PC industry have technical-support staffs that come in and fix things so they run properly, so these people don't notice this. /~brandons/wintel   (1483 words)

 Introduction to USENET NEWS
Unlike e-mail, which is "one-to-one," Usenet is "many-to-many." Usenet is the international meeting place, where people gather to meet their friends, discuss the day's events, keep up with computer trends or talk about whatever's on their mind.
Technically, Usenet messages are shipped around the world, from host system to host system, using one of several specific Net protocols.
Because they are computers, they don't mind running through thousands, even millions, of these comparisons every day. /noc/Usenet-intro.html   (1483 words)

We talked about this tonight -- that SCO has code from Linux: +,3959,1123176,00.asp "A source close to SCO, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told eWEEK that parts of the Linux kernel code were copied into the Unix System V source tree by former or current SCO employees." ROTFL!

 The ``Poor Man's ARPANET'', Unix, UUCP, and USENET
As part of the means to automate maintenance of large numbers of Unix systems within ATandT, Mike Lesk created a suite of programs collectively called UUCP  (Unix to Unix copy).
This allowed Unix systems to talk to each other using fixed lines, or phone lines, and to distribute information to and from each other.
It was particularly valued however because it was a small operating system, and was easy to tinker with. /~mike/docs/internet/internet/node5.html   (1483 words)

 Two Cray X/MP papers
One has to remember that Cray Research was faced with questions about continuing their own operating system, or using those developed at LANL or LLNL, or the upstart Unix.
By 1982, we had a C compiler and library for the Cray/1, done by Rich Lee and Delores Clark; in 1985, at the CUG spring meeting in Stockholm, Nils-Peter Nelson delivered a talk about plans to acquire an X/MP and how Unicos would be used with it (and plumping Unix in general).
The second paper is about work done after we had switched from COS, using Unicos as a guest operating system, to native Unicos as the master of the machine. /cm/cs/who/dmr/cray.html   (556 words)
