The history of Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| When Linus Torvalds released Linux 0.01 on the internet 20 years ago, his idea 
| of a free Unix clone to which anyone could contribute touched a creativenerve 
| in people. Today, it would be impossible to imagine an IT world without Linux.
| 
| It has been twenty years since Linus Torvalds programmed the first few lines 
| of what would become the Linux kernel. An IT student at the time, Torvalds 
| wasn't yet thinking of an operating system, he just wanted to explore the 
| capabilities of his PC's 386 processor. Eventually, his memory management, 
| process switching and I/O experiments developed into something that resembled 
| a rudimentary operating system kernel.
