The evolution of Unix architecture in two diagrams (spinellis.gr)

Nice work! But I can't help but notice that in the first diagram, the author misspelled "link" as "1ink".

That's a weird mistake - it can't be autocorrect or a keyboard typo. The only time I'd expect to see an error like that is during OCR scanning.

The author stated they did ocr for the first diagram.

one of his software seems interesting, outwit[0]. Windows data manipulation via command line to be used with UnxUtils[1]

p/s: Yes I know there's PowerShell / WMIC

This is a really cool way to visualize a code repository!

I wonder what it would look like for a more distantly-related type of Unix (like ubuntu, redhat, or arch, for example)

Well, there'd be a massive box for systemd in userspace, udev, dbus...
