Unix Standards: Should I use UNIX or Unix?

I came across a good article via del.icio.us at IBM developerWorks titled “Standards and specs: Not by UNIX alone” which talks about the various Unix standards including POSIX, as well as why most people who know software development well prefer working with Unix. Another interesting tidbit covered is the difference between UNIX and Unix which I’d always wondered myself, but had never got curious enough to research on my own time.

Expect to see more Unix and OS related posts in the coming weeks as I’m taking an Operating Systems class at the moment which I’m quite excited about– I’ll be writing a long paper and giving a presentation on the architecture details of FreeBSD for my class, and I’d imagine a lot of that content will end-up here in some shape or form.
