The end of the Unix war
In the beginning Bell labs created Unix
* then Berkley changed it
* then Sun, HP, SGI, ....
Each Unix was different
* Each have their own version of admin tools, boot etc
Each hardware vendor had their own Unix
* If you liked Xs hardware but thought their Unix was horrid you didn't have a choice
Linux the Saviour!
Only Unix for almost all platforms
Supported by all major workstation vendors!
Easy to port Good code between Linuxen
* Now we have distribution wars - tsk!
