I suspect 50 years of UNIX will be a theme this year across the show 
circuit.  A group of us is planning a broad exhibit for Southeast.  I 
did a little digging earlier in the week and put together a quick 
spreadsheet of distinct threads of UNIX, *NIX, and UNIX-like operating 
systems.  I realize this can be a bit of a religious discussion so 
please don't make me regret speaking up/out.  I also don't want the 
discussion to be epic.  I realize I have HeliOS listed as one line same 
as Linux or BSD.  Clearly a universal difference in scope.  And I 
understand NetBSD != OpenBSD != FreeBSD, etc.  But I was after variant 
groupings not every derivative; otherwise I would exceed the 1M row 
limit in Excel!  So if you have specific feedback, maybe reply to me off 
list and I'll aggregate it and feed a new revision back in a couple 
days.  Otherwise, chime in here as I would appreciate some general 
feedback :)
