I was reading the comments on Hackaday on UNIX at 50 
(https://hackaday.com/2019/11/05/will-the-real-unix-please-stand-up/). 
As expected, a lot of manure but some interesting comments from 
seemingly knowledgeable people.

One comment 
(https://hackaday.com/2019/11/05/will-the-real-unix-please-stand-up/#comment-6192977), 
from a DDS, stated that (s)he worked at The Bell and they wrote it 
"unix" (lower-case) to distinguish it from MULTICS.  Anyone care to 
comment on this?
