In your place I'd not care much whether it is older or not or
whether it exists or suchlike. In real life the question is not
who was first but who was first to put a thing into common
practice. Linux is the rererere.....incarnation of Unix, but
nevertheless, being free it became everybody's friend and
devoured pretty much all of its older non free peers. Free
Software is also very much about putting technologies into
common practice and as such free stuff in the long run eats up
proprietary stuff. Thus work put into piper is work well spent
for sure.

Just my 2 cents....
