Posted on 2004-09-05
Ok.. I am not a Unix Expert by here's a few questions I need help to understand, can anyone help?
1) What is relationship between MS DOS and UNIX?
2) Under what circumstances would you write a shell script and under what circumstances would you write a program?
3)Which of the popular flavors, viz., HP-UX, Solaris, AIX would you consider to be a descendent of the (East Coast) Bell Labs' efforts and which would be considered a follow-up to the (West Coast) Berkeley BSD version of UNIX?
4) Would classify Linux as West Coast (Berkeley) or as East Coast (Bell Labs)?
