UNIX Lecture 1
  • Hana Filip

What is UNIX
  • a computer operating system
  • an operating system is the software that provides
    the interface between the hardware of a computer
    system and the applications programs running on

What is UNIX
  • UNIX provides a range of tools that can be
    combined and manipulated to perform such a wide
    variety of jobs that users of the system can very
    often carry out sophisticated tasks without
    writing programs in a programming language
  • Text preparation and printing
  • Document storage and manipulation
  • Programming
  • E-mail

What is Unix
  • originally developed for multi-user systems
  • now is also run on 'stand-alone' machines

What is UNIX
  • can be found on a wide variety of computer
  • global computer networks like the World Wide Web
  • PCs often have Linux (a UNIX-type operating
    system) or a variety of BSD installed (BSD
    Berkeley Software Distribution, or Berkeley UNIX,
    one of the branches of UNIX)
  • OS X Apple Macintoshes all run a form of UNIX
  • a host of free open software systems like
    FreeBSD, NetBSD or GNU/Linux all are varieties of
    a UNIX-type operating system

History of UNIX
  • UNIX was first developed in the early 1970s at
    Bell Laboratories in the USA (in collaboration
    with GE and MIT).
  • ATT (the owners of Bell Laboratories) made UNIX
    available at nominal cost to academic users,
    allowing researchers at universities to modify
    and extend UNIX.
  • UC Berkeley was the first university to get
    interested in the UNIX system in 1973, a PDP-11
    installed in 1974, and the computer science
    department used it for extensive research
  • Columbia (1974), Santa Cruz (1979), MIT (1983 -
    Athena networked workstations)

Different UNIX Systems
  • System V (distributed by the original developers,
