They probably use their own custom operating system.

Depending on who you ask, SCO is legally the only "UNIX" out there. It's either that, or the term applies to a huge number of operating systems, possibly even Windows, which makes the whole term worthless.

Further, most operating systems that term themselves "UNIX" usually have one or two specific things that they can do better than Linux, but are inferior in every other category.

If you go by the Single UNIX Specification, you get a slightly larger list. It's slightly preferable to POSIX, due to the fact that POSIX includes just about every OS and it's dog.


At the core, theres little advantage in a highly technical association like NASA going for a UNIX OS over a Linux distro. From a technological standpoint, theres nothing a UNIX OS can do that a Linux one can't, and being open source means that Linux is infinitely modifiable. If NASA want to strip Linux down to the core and rebuild it from the ground up, they can. No such thing allowed (without $millions in licensing fees) with a proprietary OS.

I bet it is messed up with Spyware and searchbots.

ALIEN Spyware!!!

Not to worry, though. An emergency shuttle has been launched containing Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum with a counter-virus. The problem should be resolved shortly, except that George Bush forgot his flight training (oh, the irony!)

I don't see how they expect to fix anything with a iBook....unless it is running Linux.
