Unix versus Windows

Since Unix was written at Bell Labs (note you said Unix, not BSD), I think that it would qualify as "real software engineers". I don't think it matters whether the software is commercial or OSS, it matters who is doing the coding. Donald Knuth would be a "real software engineer" by most standards and certainly won't be outcoded by many. But the same can be said for Alan Cox, who falls on the OSS side of the tracks.
