Flavors of UNIX

 The table below summarizes some of the common UNIX variants and clones. While the table lists about forty different variants, the UNIX world isn't nearly as diverse as it used to be. Some of them are defunct and are listed for historical purposes. Others are on their way out. In some cases, vendors have defected to Microsoft technology. In others, mergers and acquisitions have led to the consolidation of different UNIX implementations. A list of "dead" UNIX implementations would be substantial indeed, consisting of hundreds of variations on the letters "U," "I," and "X" (CLIX, CX/UX, MV/UX, SINIX, VENIX, etc.).
