A Unix introductory document

Two years ago I created a Unix introductory document as part of a course manual for starting bio-informaticians. The document is written in OpenOffice.org (a requirement since I prefer LaTeX).

The document presents a general introduction to the Unix family of operating systems. It presents most examples using the Bourne shell (the shell that was delivered with Unix Release 7 in 1979) but aims to be agnostic towards specific Unix brands.

I made the document available under the GNU Free Documentation License so feel free to copy and use it where applicable. You can download either the OpenOffice.org format or the PDF export.
