Yep. Sun originally invented Unix.


What are they teaching kids in school these days?



Come on. Lay off the teenagers. It's an understandable mistake. Most of us are old fogeys here have been around long enough to see a lot of change in technology. Right now the computer landscape has never been more heterogeneous in the number OS's, hardware platforms and computer languages. So the kid can be excused for not knowing exactly where and when Unix came from.


Your comment is even funnier than mine.
