② Minix Operating System-minix operating system is also a clone system of Unix. It was developed by Andrew S. Tanenbaum, a famous computer professor in 1987. The emergence of the minix system and the provisionSource code(It can only be used in universities for free) has been a tornado of UNIX learning in universities around the world. At the beginning of Linux, development started in 1991 with reference to the minix system.
