OS X will get Unix onto more desktops


Author: JT Smith

From a PC Direct column: “Among the computer ‘nerd’ fraternity, next year is always the year of Unix —
it’s been Unix’s year since 1978. This year the same line is again being sold in pubs and Internet
cafes up and down the country, but with one crucial difference: the launch of Apple’s MacOS X.
That, combined with the growing acceptance of Linux within the Internet and Office server
arenas, may make all the difference, and bring Unix, this year, into the mainstream.”
