Unix is a computer operating system created by a group of guys at AT&T in 1969. It was first designed in assembly language, but after 4 years the guys from AT&T decided to switch almost all the code over to C. This language allowed the developers to better take advantage of newer hardware capabilities and thereby allowing them to continue enhancing the operating system.
Although Unix isn’t an operating system used by a majority of the PC market today, it played a vital role in in the creation of ARPANET. In the 1970s, ARPANET became the first working packet switching network — or in simpler terms, the technology that was discovered and used to create the Internet. It was stated by the members behind ARPANET that even though Unix cost around $20K to license in 1975 for non-university use, it was the OS of choice for testing and developing ARPANET.
Over the past several years, the development of Unix has split into several different branches (i.e. UC-Berkley, non-profit groups, and a few commercial vendors all play apart in keeping the OS up to date). The OS is still used in some of today’s smartphones, computer servers, and computer workstations. The coding for Unix has also become the base code for the Linux OS.
A majority of the emulators available for Linux also work on Unix since the operating systems are based off each other. Please make a selection below for more info and download links.
