Question by Ardent: Which is the smallest Unix operating system and how do I download it?
I just want to practice Unix commands and start learning shell scripting and what is kernel. Cold you tell me the earliest and/or the smallest version of Unix, I Don’t need Graphical User interface for the time being. I need the Unix to be the smallest to be practiced in with smallest space required for RAM and Hard disk.
Thanks Martino I will try that but could you tell me any version of Unix that is of the size about 2 MB like MS Dos.
Answer by Martino J
Try and get a hold of DSL (Damn Small Linux) its prob only 90MB in size and fit on any USB.
**Unix is a totally different OS, it wont run on your PC. Its mostly pay-for anyway. Linux is the only thing you can run on your PC because it basically visualizes UNIX. Uses the same commands so if you can learn Linux, UNIX will be a breeze.
