Before you go out there and order a verion of Linux (UNIX) you should do a bit of reading around to see what the best Linux version will be for you. If you have never used UNIX or Linux before well you don't want to start out with SUSE Linux. Something more along the lines of Mandrake or Redhat is the better Linux to learn with. Easier to use then some of then others.

If you really want to get tricky and have some fun. Or really want to try UNIX itself, you can order a copy of Solaris 8 for intel from the Sun Microsystems website. Don't think you can download this yet as they took the Soalris 8 for intel download off awhile ago, if it's back up and you want to try to download it, make sure you have cable it's not small.

But where to get Linux from? Well you can download it, not really a good idea unless your on aleast a cable connection. Or you can buy it. Or sometimes you can go buy a magizine with the free CD's on the cover, and sometimes they'll have a version of Linux.

GETUID(2)						     Linux Programmer's Manual							 GETUID(2)

getuid, geteuid - get user identity SYNOPSIS
#include <unistd.h> #include <sys/types.h> uid_t getuid(void); uid_t geteuid(void); DESCRIPTION
getuid() returns the real user ID of the calling process. geteuid() returns the effective user ID of the calling process. ERRORS
These functions are always successful. CONFORMING TO
POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, 4.3BSD. NOTES
History In UNIX V6 the getuid() call returned (euid << 8) + uid. UNIX V7 introduced separate calls getuid() and geteuid(). The original Linux getuid() and geteuid() system calls supported only 16-bit user IDs. Subsequently, Linux 2.4 added getuid32() and geteuid32(), supporting 32-bit IDs. The glibc getuid() and geteuid() wrapper functions transparently deal with the variations across ker- nel versions. SEE ALSO
