Unix Family History

Here's a chart showing Unix Family History from 1969 to present day.

The Unix History page on the same website lists some websites discussing the History of Unix; browsing one of these pages led me to an Overview of the Unix System which as far as I am concerned explains Unix in a way I can understand though I did pick up a few facts from the Oral History of Unix (I know it is plainly obvious, but there was actually a B programming language before C. B was created by Ken Thompson, the language didn't really work out so C was created and Unix was written in C).

If you are interested in computing then I think the History behind Unix may interest you.
