Hi all...

I don't see why the link could be offensive for us unix.com users.
Have you noticed their site is not updated ( copyright only up till 2001)?
Shouldn't they be pleased to see that we haven't forgetton their site?

The Single UNIX Specification is freely available on the world wide web. You can read or download the UNIX specification at http://www.unix-systems.org/version3/

You can join the group that develops the specs at http://www.opengroup.org/austin. You'll see a large number of folks involved from the big players such Sun, IBM, thru the Linux companies, the BSD groups , government and other users.
The latest version is also IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (POSIX).

However, if everyone objects, I will remove the link, or perhaps remove the top level category?

You might want to make it a more relevant link. For example to the online Single UNIX Spec.

First, I think it good that we have a link to the open group. We stayed pretty much on the high road and that's good for everyone, including us.

Second, I agree with jj25 that we should modify the open group post to include mention of the version 3 link. I just visited that link. I did not know that the standard was available via the web. I'll bet that a lot of other people didn't know that either. That was a very useful link. Thanks, jj25.
