Seriously, this book predicted how UNIX would evolve to a tee.

1. Operating Systems

+

In the tech world, the operating system (OS) you prefer is considered as much of a defining feature as the clothes you wear or the music you like. As a result, this page examines the three major OSes out there today: UNIX (including macOS), Linux, and Windows.

2. My published books

+

A list of the textbooks I've authored for Course Technology, Cengage, Nelson, Thompson/Delmar and Wiley.

2. Retro Computers

+

I collect vintage computers, and this page is dedicated to my favourites. The first part discusses the old personal computers of the 1970s-1990s (Apple, Commodore, Tandy, IBM, Atari, Sinclair, ColecoVision, Osborne, Kaypro and GRiD) while the second part discusses the high-end (and costly) UNIX workstations of the 1990s and early 2000s (SUN, Tadpole, SGI, DEC, NeXT and HP).
