¡Feliz Cumpleaños Linux!

¡Feliz Cumpleaños Linux!

Y en los tiempos cuando los hombres eran hombres escribían sus propios drivers, en la inmensidad de usenet, en el grupo comp.os.minix, un 25 de Agosto de 1991 Linus Benedict Torvalds proclamó:

“I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing
since april, and is starting to get ready. I’d like any feedback on
things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat
(same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons)
among other things).

I’ve currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work.
This implies that I’ll get something practical within a few months, and
I’d like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions
are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them 🙂

PS. Yes — it’s free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.
It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never
will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s all I have :-(.”

Y el resto es una historia que aún continúa, felicidades a Linux, a la comunidad y los usuarios :D.
