In Pictures: Celebrating Unix heroes

This presentation features the early Unix pioneers and their contributions to the computer industry.

Bill Joy In 1986, Bill Joy received the Grace Murray Hopper Award by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for his co-design of the Berkeley Unix operating system (known as BSD or Berkeley Software Distribution Unix), an open-source operating system with built-in TCP/IP networking. Joy’s BSD Unix also included the C shell, the vi editor, and virtual memory support, which allowed programs to function beyond the hardware’s actual physical memory. Joy became co-founder of Sun in 1982 and is currently a partner at venture capital firm Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield, & Byers.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
