The Strange Birth and Long Life of Unix

If your phone is android, you are using UNIX. Android is based off of it. If you are using a MAC, you are using UNIX. And of course, there are the many, many Linux distributions such as Ubuntu available for free.

IEEE Spectrum has a nice history of the early history of UNIX: The Strange Birth and Long Life of Unix.

I am surprised my brother Eddie did not run across this one before I did.
