You are ignorant. (Sorry)
There are other systems beyond Unix that can provide a powerfull
work environement. e.g. VMS. Sometimes I feel sad about the fact
that these days are only two classes of OS are left: Windows and *ix.
Even MacOS (X) is mostly *ix.
Where are alternatives like VMS, Genera, a "native" Smalltalk system...?

[1] Yes, I know that e.g. EMACS and TeX originates from the PDP10 and
is / was no native *ix programm. Similar for Kermit.
