What are UNIX© and Unix?
"You need Unix-level
performance and reliability. You don't have a Unix-level
Unix is one of the
originally written (coded) in assembler in 1969 by
Ritchie and Ken Thompson at
Later Unix was written (coded) again in
(its native language) for portability in 1972. Unix is the most portable and reliable OS.
By the way, UNIX© is not the
same as Unix. UNIX© (all capital
letters) is a trademark while Unix (a proper name) is
Considering the latter, BSD and Linux are not UNIX©. They are UNIX© clones,
but nonetheless they are considered Unix. If you are
confused, you are not alone.
Several vendors have registered versions of
UNIX©. They are Tru64 Unix, IBM AIX, UnixWare, IRIX and Sun Solaris.
At the same time, there are several Unix clones
like BSD and Linux. For those who
work with Windows and do not want to
handle a separate OS installation, Cygwin is handy with
its Unix-like (Linux-like) environment.
About 90% of the internet relies on
a variation of Unix (normally either
Linux or BSD), with Apache Software Foundation (ASF). For example, this web site runs on
Linux, with Apache,
SSI, Perl, PHP, MySQL and Sendmail with FormMail. If you
are new to these technologies and
would like to try them, go to Apache Friends where you can
download everything in one package.
Most (if not all) source code from
the various Linux
distributions and BSD, Apache,
PHP, MySQL and Mozilla are open source. Support the open source community. One way you can do
this is by supporting organizations like the Open Source Education

Unfortunately I have no
experience installing Tru64 Unix, IBM AIX, UnixWare, IRIX or Sun Solaris. I have experience BSD and Linux

On a side note, I never stop thinking and
processing information all
around me. As such, one of the
subjects that attracts me most (aside from technology and music) is human behavior,
not limited to psychology and ethos of the individual and masses. Hence
I usually read, study and
write essays of my own. From
all possible authors in this field, some of my favorites are (in order of
Levinas and Kant. As such, I have published two science fiction
books, in which I include my opinion on religion, sociology, psychology, politics, manipulation of
the masses, media, science and various technologies.
In Under the Thelian Sky, mankind did not
originate on Earth, but rather on Mars. When Mars could no longer sustain life, mankind
had to escape and colonized Earth. Many years later, a study was
written about the survival of mankind in Mars and its struggle in Earth led by Doctor Ajidan
Edejem. We proved to be a species that has survived
wars, slavery and other forms of abuse. All the while, the
government controlled by "them" wants to keep
everything quiet and even kill him for telling others about
the unavoidable doom. Years before the extinction of life
in Mars, the Thelian
society was perfect, yet corrupted. Life was easy, yet
difficult if you were different. For every good person,
like Ahila Keinj who found peace in The
Faith, there were many willing to destroy it all for
gain while "they" controlled the fate of many. At
the end, an outsider simply known as Operative Logger
9C56 tries to fight "them" and stop
"their" manipulation of history and mankind.

In The Daydreamer, Robert James is a normal New
Yorker who wakes up one morning unsure what had happened in
his life. He is accused of killing the woman he has always
loved, but he remembers three possible realities. Which
reality could be true? Has he dreamed these realities, seen
this events or taken part of these strange acts? Is he a
killer or is he being framed? Perhaps he knows the killer
better than anyone else without realizing it.
