History: Unix, GNU, Gnome

20190630 A brief review of the history of Unix will place in context much of the terminology and philosophy of this operating system. Terms like Linux, GNU, Unix, Gnome, Free Software, and Free and Open Source Software get bandied around, often with little understanding and usually with much misunderstanding.
