BSD was a rewrite of SysV which was the "real" unix yet BSD is still called
unix so its all semantics really. Plus a few linux distros have passed the
OpenGroup certification process and are technically Unix. I suspect the only
reason they don't all pass is because they don't want to cough up for an
increasingly meaningless moniker.

The closer you get to the kernel the more the various *nixes start to diverge
from each other. MacOS is considered unix but peel off the posix layer and its
a quite strange beast underneath.

So, Audis and Fords are probably related to each other by the fact that
they both have internals that obey certain standards.

That isn't quite the relationship between UNIX and Linux. UNIX and Linux
are not two different things that both conform to the same standard.
UNIX is a standard, and most distros of Linux come close to fully
conforming to it. According to one of the other posters on this thread,
there are even distros that fully conform to it.

Right. It is clear that my information was outdated.
The last I checked, no Linux distro had gone through
the UNIX certification process. But according to:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix

"Notably, EulerOS and Inspur K-UX are Linux
distributions certified as UNIX 03 compliant."

I have no idea what "03" means but I am pretty
damn sure it does not stand for "2003".

It's version 3 of the Single UNIX specification, released in 2002.
(Previous versions are referred to as UNIX 95 and UNIX 98, so it's
very likely that the "03" refers to the year 2003.)

That's very surprising, at least for me. I never
thought it would refer to such an old specification.
I mean, come on, 2003, that was *20 years ago*!

While we are at it:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inspur_K-UX

"Inspur K-UX 3.0 was also certified as a UNIX OS, although,
according to the same website, its certification expired
on 3 February 2019 and has not yet been renewed."

And:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EulerOS

"EulerOS 2.0, running on the Huawei KunLun Mission
Critical Server, was certified to conform to The
Open Group's UNIX 03 standard, however the certification
expired in September 2022."

I did not bother to check whether those distros
have renewed their UNIX certification. Wikipedia
can certainly contain outdated information.

Anyway, according to the same article EulerOS was
first released on September 24, 2021. It is
unbelievable that the UNIX 03 certification was
still worth acquiring just a few years ago.

How can a 20 year old specification still be
valid in a field that develops very rapidly?

I was under the impression that the classification "UNIX" was for OS's
that were derived from at least part of the original "UNIX" code - as
was the case for SunOS, AIX, and so on. I could be wrong - or it could
also have been changed. Ultimately, "UNIX" means what the owners of
that trademark decide it means, and the owners have changed over time.

> The Linux community never bothered to do that.

The history of the term "UNIX" has been filled with politics, legal
battles, economic fights - things that most of the Linux community would
prefer to stay clear of. In particular, there was that ugly business
with Microsoft paying SCO to fight with Novell about UNIX and source
code in Linux, as an underhand way to try to stop the success of Linux
challenging the monopoly of Windows. (Happily, MS has moved on a fair
bit since those days.) It's no wonder that the great majority of the
Linux community, and Linux distributors, have wanted nothing to do with
"official" UNIX.

Yes.

The reality, of course, is that such definitions are made by lawyers for
corporations with an aim for economic gain or power and control (for
future economic gain). They are not "sensible", from technical
viewpoints or from the viewpoint of being helpful to end-users.

There's nothing wrong with trying to have standards and improving
compatibility across systems. The challenge is who defines the
standards - volunteer or independent groups can easily run out of money
or energy, while company-controlled groups can be misused and biased.

Yes. Regardless of any official meaning of "UNIX", Ritchie's definition
is the realistic and practical one. c.u.p. covers "unix-like" systems
as much as "true UNIX" systems.

The trademark was transferred to X/Open (now the Open Group) two decades
ago to be applied after certification against the X/Open specifications
(subsequently merged with POSIX).

Fwiw, I think there was a big legal battle over RCU (Read Copy Update)
with IBM and SCO. I need to look it up again. IIrc, my friend Joe Seigh
had to testify.

I am too lazy to look up the reference, but I remember clearly what
Linus Torvalds admitted years ago. He said that the Linux kernel
would not have happened if BSD for i386 had been available.

I cannot recall the details, but BSD for PCs was also in some kind
of legal trouble.

Audi *IS* VW. Or more precisely, VW owns Audi. That's why Audi

Now we really have gotten to the meat of this discussion, haven't we?

I need hardly point out the insanity (a nice way of saying "hypocrisy") of
the same people who were bashing OP up and down and every way for being
off-topic (*), degenerating the thread into yet another dumb collection of
old geezers arguing about old Unix systems they once used.

At least now we're talking about cars. That's an improvement.

(*) I'm well aware of the (BS) counter-argument here. No need to
regurgitate it. Thank you.

The implication being that Linux is a subset of Unix, in the same sense as
Audi is (now) a subset of VW,

It's be like asking Amazon for help with IMDB.

No, in the sense that Audi, VW and Skoda cars are pretty much the same.

If you don't understand unix don't comment on it. From a systems devs POV
linux and unix are 99% interchangable. Yes the kernels differ but then the
solaris kernel is a very different to AIX which is different to HP-UX.

This (preceding) paragraph is totally insane and was totally unnecessary.
