Idag är det 25 år sedan Linus Torvalds vände sig till en usenet-grupp för att be om hjälp med sitt operativsystem Linux. Sedan dess har det hänt en hel del och majoriteten av våra tekniska prylar har baserats, eller i alla fall påverkats, av Linus Torvalds "hobbyprojekt".
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 :-)
