Linux cumple 19 años.

Via NovatillaSku.

Pese a que no hay un consenso general acerca de la fecha de nacimiento de Linux, en la página Atul Chitnis se baraja la posibilidad de tres fechas para el cumpleaños de Linux, y hoy es una de ellas.

Aquí dejo tres mensajes dejados por Linus Torvalds durante aquellas tres fechas, las pongo en inglés porque ya es muy tarde y no tengo tiempo de traducir, pero para eso está el traductor de google.

El primero del 3 de julio de 1991

Hello netlanders,

Due a project I’m working on (in minix), I’m interested in the posix standard definition. Could somebody please point me to a (preferably) machine-readable format of the latest posix rules? Ftp-sites would be nice.

Summary: small poll for my new operating system

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-sytem due to practical reasons)among other things.

I’ve currently ported bash (1.08) an 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 want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them 🙂

El último el 5 de octubre de ese año

From: torvalds@klaava.Helsinki.FI (Linus Benedict Torvalds)
Newsgroups: comp.os.minix
Subject: Free minix-like kernel sources for 386-AT

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.

Sea la fecha que sea, este año, Linux cumple 19.

¡FELICIDADES LINUX!
