This week I'm going to install every major BSD and Linux distro and learn for myself how they differ. Are there any other Unix open-source projects besides these two ancestors that I should consider analyzing?

  • Note, we have also a unix.stackexchange.com . – peterh - Reinstate Monica May 4 '20 at 1:40
  • "Currently in development" conflicts with "ancestors". – davidgo May 4 '20 at 8:45
  • @peterh I thought superuser was the place for unix stuff, my bad. Too many SE subsites. – PeterT May 4 '20 at 16:24
  • @alanwaring Not surely, many SE sites are not very, well... "welcoming". If there are many, there are more options to find alternatives inside the network. Btw, having the "unix" name in it will likely attract real unix gurus (and security SE attracts security experts, or physics SE is full with physics Phds). Thus, it elevates the mean level of skill in the given topic. – peterh - Reinstate Monica May 4 '20 at 18:52

Off the top of my head:

  • Illumos (descendant of Solaris, System V)
  • Minix
  • I think your post qualifies as an acceptable answer ("Looks OK"), but it would be much better if you would extend it with some elaboration & links. – peterh - Reinstate Monica May 4 '20 at 1:39
