purchasing a unix account

i just want to know if there is any place that i can purchase a unix account to use for life. i don't like the hassle of changing my email address every time i enter a new university/workplace, and i'd like some place to store files that i can access around the world. thanks!

You can get free email accounts at Yahoo! . . . they use BSD UNIX . . . there are many more free accounts available as well.

Yahoo! doesn't offer you a shell though.

There are tons of ISP's out there that will be happy to give you a shell for a fee. Check the search engines for "unix shell account" or something similar.
