/wee'niks/ An ITS fan's derogatory term for Unix, derived
from Unix weenie. According to one noted ex-ITSer, it is
"the operating system preferred by Unix Weenies: typified by
poor modularity, poor reliability, hard file deletion, no file
version numbers, case sensitivity everywhere, and users who
believe that these are all advantages". Some ITS fans
behave as though they believe Unix stole a future that
rightfully belonged to them.
