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.
