lisp history, MULTICS vs UNIX, PL/I, …
Got this accolade, and it made my day:
The original version of MULTICS (the predecessor of UNIX (TM) , the precedessor of Linux) was written in PL/I. (Yes, I'm as old as that.......) kind regards, andy
PS. and one more note: Xah Lee wrote very well about the history of LISP/AI/functional programming, to my opinion.
