The Complete Guide to Unix-like Operating Systems

TuxUnix is an operating system originally created by a group of AT&T employees, which has since been reimplemented in a number of operating systems including Solaris, HP-UX, AIX and Mac OS X. Unix is a trademark, and only operating systems compliant with and certified according to the Single UNIX Specification can use the term. However there are many Unix-like operating systems including Linux and FreeBSD.

This guide takes a look at some of the applications and services that can be run on operating systems such as Linux, as well as providing some tips on getting the most out of your Unix-like operating system.
