This should be in the *nix forum.

Well to explain it simple.

Unix is an operating system just as Windows. Bu mostly used on servers / mainframes. And very expensive. There also are free *nix clones out there. you have the bsd part (freebsd, openbsd and netbsd, the most common), Plan9 (pretty unknown but it's there somewhere laugh ) and offcourse pretty known, linux (slackware, ...)

So if you want to learn about *nix get yourself a few books about it and i'd suggest getting some linux flavor (linux distro) (cause linux still is the most easy form of *nix to start with) and start experimenting.


Never argue with fools... They will only drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience...

Kickfoot doesn't even know what Unix is, you think he/she knows how to experiment with Linux?

Follow those links into a happily, lazy oblivion. They may or may not help you.
