Who wants a giant poster of the history of Unix?

You'll need a bigger cubicle

The essential guide to IT transformation

This one is strictly for the hardcore fan - for the very first time, it says here, you have the chance to purchase a giant poster showing the history and development of Unix.

That's right - this 40 foot poster includes over 1,000 versions of 150 different types of Unix.

Backed with fractal art by Alan Tenant, the poster is based on Eric Levenez's diagram of the heavy duty operating system.

Debian, OpenServer, OpenBSD and Mac OSX all have their place in history shown.

Printed at 600 dpi and weighing over 10 pounds these tear resistant, weatherproof posters are surely the perfect gift for your favourite database admin.

Smaller versions are available if your office does not have room for a 12.1m by 70cm poster.

Disclosure: The gent behind this poster is longtime friend of the Reg Leighton Jones. He provided the vulture decals for our sponsored jaunt across the Sahara.

Technical details, and ordering, available here. ®
