We neglect our OS at the risk of radically underutilizing the incredible tools that it enables our device to be. Most of us only come into contact with one, or possibly both, of two families of operating systems: "House Windows" and "House Practically Everything Else." The latter is more commonly known as Unix.

Many thanks to Mr. Terrasi for yet another enlightened instruction, this time into Unix. The article was a good mix of history, architecture, and philosophy. As is always the case with Mr. Terrasi it is delivered with humility and appreciation for the subject at hand. Those of us who have been with Unix since the early Bell days might quibble with a few of the details, but those details are insignificant relative to the engaging insights provided.

Thank you for your flattering words. Indeed, my hope with this article was to express my abiding admiration for Unix, and nurture the same in others. In the interest of doing Unix justice, if I missed or mischaracterized something about its history or composition, I definitely want to know so I can set things straight.

How will the pandemic influence your holiday shopping habits this year?
I will shop online exclusively, for my own safety and to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
I will do some shopping online, and some in-person because I want to support merchants in my area.
I will shop online definitely, and I will consider local retailers -- but only if they provide curbside service.
I will only shop in-person because the risks associated with e-commerce outweigh my chance of catching COVID-19.
I will not do any holiday shopping this year due to circumstances related to the pandemic.
