Happy Birthday Unix — a young 40.

40 years ago, Unix was dreamt up in the AT&T labs by Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie. If it was not for these 2 guys, Unix would probably not existed and neither would Linux.  Yes, I know, Linux is now based on Unix but nobody can argue that Unix has a lot of influence on how Linux progressed through the years.

And today a lot of big, big companies like IBM, HP and others make their living out of Unix or some incarnation like AIX.
