This from today's New York Times story at
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/11/technology/11novell.html about SCO
losing its claims to ownership of Unix:
"The Unix operating system, which has become popular with some
independent-minded PC users as well as in the corporate world, was
developed by AT&T researchers at Bell Labs beginning in 1969. During
the 1970s, the operating system became highly influential in academic
computing and in computer science departments.
In the ´80s, it had a significant impact in the computer workstation
and minicomputer markets, although it never gained a significant
foothold in the personal computer business until Steven P. Jobs
brought a version of Unix with him when he returned to Apple Computer
in 1997. Some PC makers have begun to offer versions of Linux instead
of Microsoft´s Windows operating systems."
What does Apple and Steve Jobs have to do with Unix?
