General Unix UNIX was a terrific workhorse for its time, but eventually the old nag needs to be put out to pasture. David Chisnall argues that it's time to retire UNIX in favor of modern systems with a lot more horsepower. "UNIX has a lot of strengths, but like any other design it's starting to show its age. Some of the points listed in this article apply less to some UNIX-like systems, some apply more."

true. but still, my point is that he sounds like he wants to trow away unix for windows or something rather then trow away unix and start from scratch in the thinking.

maybe he should take a look at skyos or syllable?
