<operating system, convention, legal>
A way of writing the operating system name "Unix" that avoided the (TM) postfix that was believed to be a legal requirement in the days when Unix was a trademark of AT&T.It has been suggested that there may be a psychological connection to practice in certain religions (especially Judaism) in which the name of the deity is never written out in full, e.g. "YHWH" or "G--d" is used. See also glob.
