Oggi, quindici anni fa, un certo Linus Torvalds scriveva su usenet:

    „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 
    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 (torvalds@kruuna.helsinki.fi)

    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 :-( .“ 

prima versione di Linux 0.0.1 era disponibile su ftp il 17 settembre
