Forum spell bug: Un*x

Post by klumy » Sun Jun 26, 2005 9:29 am

the XNview Forum shows

XnView - Un*x
Questions, suggestions, and answers for XnView on all Un*x platforms (Linux, HP-UX, AIX, Mac OS, ...)

But it must be Unix instead of Un*x
XNView 1.91.5
Windows XP SP3

I think it's deliberately spelt that way as a bit of fun.
Windows 10 Pro x64 1909
XnViewMP and Classic and PhotoFiltre Studio X

The idea behind "Un*x" is to emphasize that this is not just Unix, but Linux, HP UX, MAC OSX, ...
