UNIX Training with Michigan Technology Services

Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led UNIX and Linux training. The training can take place at our location in Farmington Hills, 20 miles outside of Detroit, onsite at your office anywhere throughout the United States, or if you prefer, instructor led live online.

UNIX is a computer operating system developed by AT&T Bell Labs.

UNIX has impressive power, but the technical competence required to operate its command-line interface caused it to fall from favor as Novell and Microsoft began shipping network operating systems in the 1990s. Quite frankly the UNIX syntax was not intuitive, and its interface was unfriendly. Microsoft made things easier for network administrators.

Now a single Graphical User Interface that is shipped and supported by all major UNIX vendors has replaced command-line syntax. We also now see companies using Linux - and a rebirth of interest in UNIX.

If you are in need of UNIX training, command-line or GUI, Michigan Technology Services, located in the metro Detroit area, is a valuable resource.
