This article, hosted by IBM, gives more truth about UNIX than anywhere else I've seen.
I always kinda wondered about that.
No that we got that cleared up, lets discuss why hot dogs come in packages of 10, but hot dog buns come in packages of 8.
Boggles the mind.
Because it is intended that every person, will always, without fail, buy 5 packages of buns a long with 4 packages of hot dogs.
That, and there are more misc. meat farms than there are bun farms.
the hot dogs i buy come in packages of 8...
as usual for ibm articles, it was interesting, but so wordy as to be confusing enough for me not to finish it. anywhere with an 'extended summary?'
Mine too, but I can only get buns in 6x or 12x
Yep, 8 or 10 around here.
So many things have been called Unix by so many people for so many years that the term no longer means anything. If it walks and quacks like a duck, it's probably an operating system. Or a duck. Or not.
I think that covers it.
The bun discussion? A little off topic.... What have I done!
Maybe this need it's own thread. Ha! That would be pretty low.
OK, back to UNIX!
the different versions of "unix" are more similar than not. UNIX is a trademark. Unix is a design philosophy.
Technically, they're more similar than not. Operationally, they're still not all that similar but certainly better than they were in the 1980s.
dmr has a collection of many interesting things named Unix, none of which are hot dogs.
what? no unix condoms?
Hot dogs come in packs of 8 and buns in packs of 10 so you can buy 5 packs of hot dogs and 4 packs of buns and have the same amount of hot dogs as buns.
Eunuchs wouldn't need them...
