[Unix icon]

Unix is a large family of operating systems, some of the better-known variants being FreeBSD, Linux, and Sun Solaris.

Programs on this site noted as working under Unix should work under most versions of the operating system, although you may need to make sure the right versions of various libraries and other dependencies are installed. If this means nothing to you, it is probably wisest to contact your system administrator.

Mac OS X

Although Mac OS X is a Unix-like operating system, and the most recent versions are fully-qualified Unices, getting the Unix-specific programs on this site work on it can be a bit of a chore if it is not mentioned that the program will also work under OS X.
