Working with UNIX/Linux

UNIX was invented in 1969 and continues to dominate the market. UNIX and UNIX-based operating systems are known for their stability and security. Almost all networking support evolved on UNIX. You could say the Internet runs primarily because of UNIX! Linux, the free and open-source UNIX clone, has not only brought the power of UNIX to the desktop, but also to embedded devices and mobile phones as well. Probably the only limitation of these wonderful operating systems are that they are not very user-friendly and requires a trained user to work on them.
