On 25th August 1991 Linus Torvalds, a student at Department of Computer Science in University of Helsinki Finland sent this message to fellow geeks and Minix enthusiasts on 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 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

Fast forward 25 years: Almost 1.4 billion Android devices today are using a Linux fork, almost all smart TVs use Linux. Super computers, servers and so on. Infrastructure of sites like Facebook is running on Linux servers.

Linus has had too many wars over hardware vendors supporting Microsoft & not Linux to ever be that close. :)

 

As for Linux,  :birthday:  & hopefully many more to come. :guitar:

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
