Why Unix Is Superior
Quick post, outlining what I think makes the Unix family of operating systems superior, including “unix-like” operating systems such as GNU/Linux, BSD, and others. Of course, the list isn’t exhaustive- it’s just something I threw together in 10 minutes. The motivation of the post was a discussion in ##unix on Freenode.
1. The command line interface.
2. Various shells, including their script syntax.
3. Builtin programming language support for many languages.
