Features of Unix

 - A multitasking and multiuser operating system.   - Filled with powerful tools and small, easily-pipelined commands.   - Easy programming and comprehensive documentation.

Unix Architecture

Discover the power of Unix with its four-layer architecture, starting with the hardware and working up to the user-friendly application programs.

1. Kernel  The kernel is the heart of Unix, responsible for managing processes and files and acting as an interface between the user and hardware.

2. Shell  The shell serves as the bridge between the user and kernel, interpreting commands and requesting their execution. Choose from three different shell options: Bourne, C, and Korn.

Types of Unix
