I don't believe he had any clue that he was about to revolutionise the entire planet.

I recall that and went looking for it because I thought it was the understatement of the millennium but I couldn't see it. Maybe it's time for new spectacles...

Speaking of GNU, what is taking them so long to release the Hurd kernel?

I wasn't speaking of gnu and I have no idea why you're asking me instead of google.

Linus Benedict Torvalds wrote: 8/26/91

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 (torv...@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 :-(.

Why would you want to click on 25 YO links anyway? Isn't that a bit like driving through central downtown and expecting all the shops to be just where, and as, they were 25 years ago.
