Our Technical Documentation department is having an argument about which word
we should use -- "Unix" or "UNIX" -- to refer to the operating system.


There is no argument.

If you are referring to the software product, it's UNIX (all capped)

It's also a registered trademark of Novell, Inc., (btw..not AT&T anymore) so
the first time you use it in a document, you must place the little Registered
Trademark symbol and also include it on a Trademarks section in the front of
the document.
