It is taken that UNIX has its own philosophy and several items in the philosophy are written in different references.
- UNIX is also deemed to be an operating system of the programmer.
- UNIX programmers have done a wonderful work just as for tackling a necessary affair, from which others else really benefit. It is critical for the academic community.
- If AT&T could market computer products without a 1956 Consent Decree signed with the Federal Government, and if Bell Laboratories did not withdraw Ken Thompson and others from the MULTICS project, and if Professor Robert S. Fabry of the University of California at Berkeley did not contact Ken Thompson at the Symposium on Operating Systems Principles at Purdue University in November 1973, we would have a totally different story about UNIX.
