UNIX: A Review

Girish Mehta, Kirti Sharma, Himanshu Saini


UNIX is a computer Operating System which is capable of handling activities from multiple users at the same time. UNIX was one of the first operating systems to be written in a high-level programming language, namely C. This meant that it could be installed on virtually any computer for which a C compiler existed. This natural portability combined with its low price made it a popular choice among universities. (It was inexpensive because antitrust regulations prohibited Bell Labs from marketing it as a full-scale product.)

Keywords: Marketing, UNIX, probability, regulations, popular
