Unix and I

Basically I'm an educated Unix user, not a Unix hacker/guru/wizard. But if you have deep questions about Unix, I'll try to find someone who can answer them.

I have given some basic courses on Unix for people working at Helsinki University of Technology. Together with Timo Larmela, I have written a book (in Finnish) about using Unix; the book is Johdatus UNIXiin (published by Otadata).

I have also authored or co-authored several Unix-related guides and Web documents in Finnish.

My experiences with Unix include variants of BSD as well as AIX, HP-UX, and DEC OSF. As regards to the question "which Unix is the real Unix?", I have no strong feelings.

On the Web, there are at least three rather good and extensive sources of information about Unix:
