Chapter 3. Unix Basics For Mac OS X

Chapter 3. Unix Basics For Mac OS X

BY RON HlPSCHMAN

Ron Hipschman has been playing with computers at the Exploratorium in San Francisco for more years than he wants to admit. At the Exploratorium he has also built exhibits, taught classes, written books, and created the Exploratorium's Web site (www.exploratorium.edu) way back in 1993 when it was among the first 600 sites on the Internet. This is where he learned his Unix (on a Sun Microsystems machine).

Ron's first “real” computer was an IMSAI 8080 that he soldered together from a kit and loaded software (initially) with the toggle switches on the front panel. That computer ran an operating system called CP/M. He became a Mac fanatic in 1985 (he waited for the Mac Plus…). He's on his fifth Mac (A Power Mac G4). He sponsors a local Mac user group that meets at the Exploratorium (www.bmugwest.com). He is now very happy that he has his two favorite operating systems (Mac OS and Unix) all in one system.
