The Daemon, the GNU and the Penguin

~ by Peter H. Salus

A note to my readers

There have been a very large number of queries and many comments concerning my work and its development. As a consequence, I've decided to post my "Table of Contents," which I think of as a roadmap. This is not (yet) cast in concrete. I had not planned (for example) the Excursus between Chapters 8 and 9 until last week. But here's my plan. PHS

  • 0. 1968 and 1969
  • 1. Ancient History: IBM & SHARE; DARPA & IPTO

  • 5. UUCP & USENET
  • 6. 1979: V7
  • 7. BSD
  • 8. "Free as in freedom"
  • Excursus: Hardware
