What is Unix?

Unix is a computer operating system originally developed in 1969 by a group of AT&T employees at Bell Labs. Today's Unix systems are split into various branches, developed over time by AT&T as well as various commercial vendors and non-profit organizations.

Unix and Unix-like operating systems, including Linux, form the basis of many, if not most, modern computing systems.

The University of Manitoba employs GNU/Linux and Solaris on our Unix login servers.
