Parabens Linux, pelos teus lindos 15 aninhos!!

Puttzzzz, já se passaram 15 lindos anos desde que o Linux nasceu!!! Foi dia 25 de Agosto de 1991. Parece que foi na semana passada! Sim, na semana passada porque me parece que foi há 2 dias que instalei pelo primeira vez uma distribuição, uma Red Hat 6.2, depois a RH 7.0, depois Mandrake 9.0, SuSE, Knoppix e agora Debian. Para a memória futura eis a mensagem que o Linus enviou ao mundo:

"Hello everybody out there using minix -

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 :-)

Linus (torva...@kruuna.helsinki.fi)

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

Obrigado Linus, pelos momentos de prazer que eu tenho tido à frente do monitor! E parabéns!!
