 "The Real Unix Tradition"

 !!Please wear your your best shirt, a group photo-op will follow this

 UNIX hackers, all standing on the shoulders of giants.

 "...the number of UNIX installations has grown to 10, with more
 Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson, June 1972

 "Well, it was all Open Source, before anybody really called it that."
 Brian Redman, 2003

 UNIX is the oldest active and growing computing culture alive today.
  From it`s humble roots in the back room at Bell Laboratories, to today`s
 global internet infrastructure - UNIX has consistently been at the core
 of major advances in computing. Today, the BSD legacy is the most direct
 continuation of the most successful principles in UNIX, and continues to
 lead major advances in computing.

 Why? What`s so great about UNIX?

 This lecture aims to prove that UNIX history is surprisingly useful (and
 fun) - for developers, sysadmins, and anyone working with BSD systems.
