_Read Me First: A Style Guide for the Computer Industry_
is from Sun Technical Publications. Unlike the MS style guide,
it tries to be platform independent but all of the guidelines
certainly work in a UNIX environment. You may also want to
look for specific terminology for your environment (such as
CDE, Motif, and so on).
