1982, AT&T introduces UNIX, a new revolutionary Operating System. Revolutionary because it keeps things simple and modular. They let people build their own solutions.

What’s the important about the UNIX system is not so what Denis and Ken put inside but what they were able to leave out of it.

It’s old but still a lot to be learnt from.
