General Unix

In what's never going to be a regular occurance, I'm linking to a Twitter thread. Chris Espinosa tweets:

Just as I was wrapping up an email and getting ready to leave work, a co-worker rolled his chair over to show me an "interesting" thing.

Go ahead, read it.

UNIX, man. Not even once.

What OS is was he using? I'm guessing macOS, since he's referring to "Terminal", rather than "the terminal", or xterm, gnome-terminal, etc etc.

And if that's the case, well, which new features of macOS has documentation that exists only as a man page?

That's the real question.

Or maybe IRIX, BeOS, Haiku, Syllable, AtheOS or perhaps SkyOS. :-P

And none of those have any new features.

Except maybe Haiku.

I'm guessing macOS because we're talking about Chris Espinosa:

Which also explains why his shell is so bad it didn't handle the conversion in the streaming operator like a modern Linux shell.
