Video Monday | AT&T Archives: The UNIX Operating System

It’s time for another Video Monday. Today’s video is a bit of a throwback to an earlier time. It’s a video called “The UNIX Operating System” from the AT&T Archives. In the late 1960s two men, Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson, who where computer scientists working at Bell Laboratories created a new computer operating system that would be called UNIX. While the original OS isn’t in much use today the ideas about how the OS were created has inspired many different OSes that are considered the core of the computing world today.
