"Unix which was created before WIndows, strongly formed the basis for the design of LInux."

So what? The Unix of the day was decidedly unready for the WWW prime-time it was about to be introduced to. I know this because I was there.

And many upon many of the issues we face in the WWW reality of today are facts of life because of naive design decisions made in those heady Unix-only days of ARPANET, when "Bad Guys" weren't really bad, just mischievous pranksters.
