Lots of people asked me to write another piece about the internals of well-known Unix commands. Well, actually, nobody asked me, but it makes for a good intro. I'm sure you’ve read the previous parts about `yes` and `ls` &mdash; they are epic.

The road to Unix as we know it today is a long and winding one. Turbulent times meant that the core of UNIX was split between two factions that went to war. In this article, we tell the story of these UNIX wars and their outcomes.
