(5.1) Making OS/2 Warp Resemble Unix

I'm a Unix wizard. How do I make OS/2 Warp resemble Unix?

A great number of GNU and Unix utilities have been ported to OS/2 Warp native mode and are available from (3.2) Shareware and Freeware Sources. A uucp package, UUPC/Extended, is available via anonymous ftp from ftp.clarkson.edu, directory /pub/uupc; mail help@kew.com with questions.

In addition, the Hamilton C Shell is available from Hamilton Labs (phone 508-358-5715 or mail 3890321@mcimail.com). The Thompson Toolkit, a Bourne-like shell, and awk are published by Thompson Automation (phone 206-224-1639). MKS (phone 519-884-2251 or mail pat@mks.com) publishes a number of standard Unix utilities for OS/2 Warp. An OS/2 Warp version of lint is available from Gimpel Software (phone 215-584-4261). OS/2 Warp comes with full featured Internet access software called the Internet Connection. For OS/2 Warp-specific X Windows server support, IBM provides an optional package available with its TCP/IP Version 2 for OS/2. (Hummingbird and AESoft also sell X-Window server kits for OS/2 Warp.)

DOS and Windows based utilities and aids still work fine under OS/2 Warp.
