UNIX for the PC (Politically Correct)
August 1, 2009 § Leave a comment
While cleaning up one of my old websites, I decided to move the technical-related articles to this blog. I’m starting with a document I wrote back in 1993 that was accepted on the USENIX newsgroup rec.humor.funny. This was all pre-Linux, so the whole concept of UNIX on a Personal Computer was itself something of a joke!
The humor is certainly a bit dated, but Google still finds over 5,000 copies (alas, mostly uncredited). Yes, I really did write this myself.
Much later, this also formed the basis for a surprisingly successful Apple Fool’s Day marketing request — but that’s another story. :-}
