14 años de Linux

por davidgp el 06/10/2005

En Microsiervos nos recuerdan que Linux ya ha cumplido 14 añitos, tomando como nacimiento el mail que mandó Linus Torvalds anunciando su nacimiento:

Do you pine for the nice days of minix-1.1, when men were men and wrote their own device drivers? Are you without a nice project and just dying to cut your teeth on a OS you can try to modify for your needs? Are you finding it frustrating when everything works on minix? No more all- nighters to get a nifty program working? Then this post might be just for you 🙂

As I mentioned a month(?) ago, I’m working on a free version of a minix-lookalike for AT-386 computers. It has finally reached the stage where it’s even usable (though may not be depending on what you want), and I am willing to put out the sources for wider distribution. It is just version 0.02 (+1 (very small) patch already), but I’ve successfully run bash/gcc/gnu-make/gnu-sed/compress etc under it.


Los tiempos han cambiado desde que yo comencé con el, empezando con una Slackware en 1996, que se instalaba a través de disquetes, pasando por muchas otras como Red Hat, Debian, Gentoo, Knoppix, Ubuntu… y realmente ha cambiado bastante en estos 14 años, aunque de este si que se puede decir que su padre lo sigue reconociendo 😉
