They first began in the early 1980's and continue today. Early servers ran various flavors of UNIX, hence the name Public Access "UNIX" Systems, but later generations saw a large mix of Unix-variants and, of course, GNU/Linux. To recognize the many different operating systems online today, these systems are increasingly referred to generically as "pubnixes". One of the enduring characteristics of pubnixes, beyond the simple access to computational services, is the community that develops among each system's users. These communities tend to have a particular flavor of shared interests, and in many ways it is within these communities that the vision of a non-corporate Internet remains alive. The Pubnix History Project is a compilation of writings and resources about the history of public access UNIX and GNU/Linux systems (pubnixes). Its goals are to document the history of these systems and their communities, and to encourage ongoing participation by new generations of users and sysadmins. ================================================================= _ _ _ | |_ ___| |_ __| | | ' \/ -_) | '_ \_| |_||_\___|_| .__(_) |_| This git repo maintains data for the pubnix history project.
