What does UNIX mean?

UNIX was originally spelled “Unics”. UNICS stands for UNiplexed Information and Computing System, which is a popular operating system developed at Bell Labs in the early 1970s. The name was intended as a pun on an earlier system called “Multics” (Multiplexed Information and Computing Service).
