General Unix The end of the world is near. At last that of the Unix world. That's the prediction of Donald Feinberg, vice-president of Gartner. "Linux is coming, Unix is dead." But there's no need to panic. Not just yet. The end is not going to come overnight or even in next week or year, but it is certain, or as he puts it, "an absolute".

UNIX dead?

I can't understand how UNIX could become "dead", I guess it would be from Linux developing faster, but in a worse case scenario the commercial unixes can become free aswell, so what is the problem here? And also most open-source programs can be run on any anyway so how could they "die"?

Just sounds like someone wanted to get some attention, BSD and Solaris aren't dead.
