  • Unix vs Linux

    Unix was started by Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie and some other engineers including Brian Kernighan back in the early 1970s. It has a long and illustrious history. But then Linux came along and things changed. How is Linux different to Unix? Are they the same thing? Please, let me explain!

  • TrueOS: Linux or Windows Alternative

    TrueOS is a Windows or Linux alternative based on the FreeBSD operating system. In this video I install TrueOS in VirtualBox, and also try out a range of applications.

    Most people are familiar with Windows, Mac, or both, and probably use only one operating system most of their lives. You might be aware of others out there, such as versions of Linux, but probably don't know much about them. This video will go over all sorts of other options for free operating systems, how they relate to each other, and how you might pick a new operating system for your computer.
