The History of UNIX

Thanks to Anton Aylward for bringing this discussion to my attention.

This is a link to an essay by Andy Tanenbaum, developer of MINIX. This discussion specifically relates to a recent (probably manufactured) controversy regarding the authorship of Linux.

There is a follow up article from the Linuxinsider web site which presents related comments by Richard Stallman -- Accusatory Report Deliberately Confuses.
