Need monitoring and utility programs for AIX
Looking for FLOSS monitoring and utility programs that will port to AIX. I found an older version of top with AIX support. I also saw some AIX patches for an older version of htop and I can get them working with the latest version. There's source for njmon. Does anyone have other lightweight FLOSS C/C++ monitoring utilities or tools they'd recommend for AIX? Thanks.

Is MINIX still used as OS?
I've thinking and, before Linux, MINIX was the best operating system for students, and it even helped Linus Torvalds for creating it. Is it still used for educational or commercial purposes? Could you give aniy example?

> This article is about how pipes are implemented the Unix kernel. I was a little disappointed that a recent article titled “How do Unix pipes work?” was not about the internals, and curious enough to go digging in some old sources to try to answer the question.

UNIX source code
Is there any source code of the originl UNIX? If it is, why is anybody using it for giving life again the first Unix?

Most UNIX, Unix-like
I want to know what you think is the most UNIX similar OS to the original UNIX, about the User Interface, the commands, the way the programs work, etc
