&gt; There needs to be a book with stuff like this. There is no Unix history<br>

So having just finished a book project and therefore having a bit of a clue<br>

Many of the folks on this list are obsessive with details that matter to,<br>
well, only people on this list.  To make a good book I think that it would<br>
have to trace the major paths, innovations, and people.  In any case, this<br>
would be easy - just write whatever you want and wait for Clem to correct<br>
