Why I Love Unix

By  

I will never forget E*Trade's millenium party and the Harleys that were given away as door prizes! Those really were the days. I came back East when the "dot com" boom was well into its descent and joined a company that does some wondrous things in the communications arena. From text messaging to satellite communications, TCS is putting a lot of genuinely exciting technology out there. You might even be using some of it without knowing it.

I'm still writing and teaching on the side. While my Unix blog (Unix as a Second Language) goes off the air with this entry, I expect I will continue to write. Maybe some security topics to follow my move into Information Security, maybe another book or two.

But after all these years, I'm still fascinated with Unix! I still love grep and awk. I'm still fascinated by the amount of work that I can get done with a single line of text. And I'm still stopping every now and then to remember "Wow, and I get PAID for this!".

And, yes, I'm still trying to pass on the excitement to those who just don't "get" why Unix is so very cool.

I'd like to thank all of you who have been reading this blog. I hope I've been able to pass on some useful ideas from time to time and I hope you have come to love Unix even a fraction as much as I do.
