Linus Torvalds Celebrates 22 Years of Linux Nostalgically

Linux celebrates its 22nd birthday this week and its creator remembers the time when he was developing the first version in commemorative commentary on Google +

This week Linux is 22 years old

About 22 years ago a project was born that would revolutionize worldwide computing at every level, from a potato to the supercomputers that NASA uses in space stations.

Obviously Linus Torvalds, creator of the Linux Kernel, did not believe that this would ever come where it came, with so many people in love with it, so many dedicated lives bringing the best in Free software to people.


In his Google+ account Linus made a very nostalgic joke remembering what he had written when he was developing Linux.

Hello everyone using minix I am creating a (free) operating system (just a hobby, not being big and professional like gnu) for 386 (486) clones, Torvalds wrote on August 26, 1991 asking people to submit requests for resources.

And yesterday, 25, Torvalds announced the release of the Linux 3.11-rc7 kernel in a similar way.

Hello everyone using Linux I am creating a (free) operating system (just a hobby, even if it is big and professional) for 486+ AT clones and just about any top machine. This has been done since April since 1991, and is not yet ready. I would like your feedback on things people like / dislike about Linux 3.11-rc7, wrote on Google+.

He is one of the most important people in the history of technology, and I sometimes think he does not have the proper merit out of the circles he deals with and works with Linux, but anyway, congratulations to Linux and its users no matter what distribution they use.

My greetings, see you next time!
