NOTES : I'm aware that Dennis Ritchie was the co-creator of Unix but I said Linux for some reason and didn't notice until long after it was uploaded. My bad! Either way, it's like he did have a hand in the creation of Linux anyways since it's based on Unix, maybe he's like the grandfather, or estranged great-uncle ;)

Also, as for MacOS and BSD, I know MacOS's history involved a lot more such as NeXTSTEP/Mach OS/BSD/Darwin etc, but I only mentioned BSD because more people have heard of it and I didn't want to get into the whole evolution of Mac to keep the video shorter.

Thanks for watching!
