Actually, it's quite old, at least by modern standards.

There is nothing funnier than
the truth -- and I can testify that at least the first 22 pages are
both true and funny.
Yes, this is a well written and well argumented rant against UNIX. 
However, the authors lack nuance which somewhat undermines the 
seriousness of their arguments. It does contribute to reading pleasure 
though, a book worth advising. Especially the chapter on NeWS vs X, 
which resembles my personal opinion very closely.
