What is Unix and why is it important?
Unix is an operating system that supports multitasking and multi-user capabilities. Unix provides a simple and user-friendly interface for users. It is the first OS to be written in high-level (C) programming language.
Unix is important:-
- Firstly, because of its design attributes from the initial release itself. That is, each complex task is divided into small, modular utilities that are easy to do.
- Secondly, during the initial internet boom, most web servers were UNIX machines from IBM, Sun, etc., hence making it a standard system for web servers.
