- Start w/ History of Unix...
- Unix started a Bell Labs, the US, in 1960s - Mac OS X, which based on BSD which is from Berkley, CA 1977 - Linux, which is from a guy named Linux Torvalds in Finland 1991 - but...what made BSD possible and Linux possible, was the work of Richard Staltzman at MIT who create a set of programs and libraries called GNU. 1983 - but more importantly Staltzman introduce the idea of free and open software, GNU licience - this is contrary to the idea of propriatiary software like adobe design software, which you can not read or change the source code.
- Most all software today still uses at least pieces of these early libraries and programs, but today wil will investigate them on a much lower level, and for fun in the context of emoji.
- There is a window into this lower level of software via a program called the Terminal on most computers. -
