A while back I came across Éric Lévénez's Unix History page after reading mention (in a brian d foy blog) of a nifty Unix Timeline chart there. Now I see that, based on another chart at Lévénez's site, his Computer Languages Timeline, O'Reilly has now put together a slick-looking History of Programming Languages poster, along with a related wiki.

But note that like the also-very-cool Anatomy of a Linux System poster that O'Reilly put out a few years back, hard copies of this poster aren't for sale. If you want to get your hands on a copy, it looks like your only choice (other than printing it out at your own expense) is either to pick one up at an O'Reilly conference or to ask for one when you order two or more books through the O'Reilly bookstore.

non-US people left out again...
Seems it's only available for US customers as usual with such goodies.
