A new video on Microsoft’s UNIX: XENIX (coming soon)

It might amaze you to know that Microsoft were once the biggest seller of UNIX in the world. Moreso than AT&T, BSD and all the other big players in the field during the early to mid 80s. They had a product called XENIX which was a true multi-user, multi-tasking UNIX variant and it was available for microcomputers, including the Intel platform. This was around 1979/1980, so before they even brokered their deal with IBM for PC/MS-DOS. I’m going to spill the beans on what happened with and to XENIX in my next video on Al’s Geek Lab. And you lucky Patreons are going to get a first look. If there’s anything you’d like to know about or see specifically in the video, then please let me know, I’m still working on the creative direction, but this is a video I’ve been dying to do for a long time.

And now I have my new editing powerhouse (yes, a Mac Mini M2!), I should be able to edit this content a lot quicker than my 13 year old PC, which was what was powering all of this before.
