Sure I can understand if ppl like to keep up the whole "cool by association" myth but I'd thought the recent major UNIX thread already established that Linux by design, standards, philosophy ain't UNIX?..

GNU's Not Unix.

Well it is very close. Further, Linux is not officially GNU.

On the contrary, designwise Linux and GNU are very much based on Unix.

In the UK, you can't just have any old plate. L1 NUX and L7 NUX both exist, but are not for sale at present. (You also wouldn't be allowed to have them on a car older than 1993; the plate indicates a date, and must not make the car look newer than it is). I don't think there is any way to get an approximation of 'unix' on a UK plate.

(groan...) 40 years, and I have seen all of them and then some.

Suddenly, I feel old. Bleah. Sux.
