What is *nix interface


I am totally new to Linux and I have come accross *nix interface.

What is it? I tried a google search and it yielded me another OS command line interface.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

I'm not quite sure what you mean, where did you come
across that term?



Cheers,
Tink

do you mean "what does *nix mean?" ?

*nix is a generic slang term for any form of unix-like oss.

AFAIK it stems from some silly superstition similar to The Scottish Play, if you're familiar with that..
