Linux birthday Celebrate

Linux Birthday 2023

Today we enthusiastically celebrate the anniversary of one of the most significant milestones in the history of technology: Linux. 31 years ago, the legendary Linus Torvalds released the Linux kernel, starting a movement that would change the computing landscape forever. What initially was a project without any ambition, initially a terminal emulator. It has become, over the years, one of the largest free software in the world.

On August 25, 1991, student Linus made his now famous announcement in the comp.os.minix newsgroup:


I’m making a (free) operating system (just a hobby, it 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 would appreciate any feedback on things people like/dislike about minix, as my OS looks similar in some way (same physical filesystem layout (due to practical reasons), among other things).
I’ve already ported bash (1.08) and gcc (1.40), and things seem to work. It implies that I’m going to get something practical in a few months and I’d like to know what features most people would like to have. All suggestions are welcome, but I do not promise that I will implement them ?
— Linus

PS. Yes – it’s free of any minix code and has a multi-threaded fs. It is NOT portable (uses 386 task switching, etc.) and will probably never be compatible with anything other than AT hard drives, since that’s all I have :-(.”

Tux Birthday Celebrate

As seen, the creator himself did not expect it to grow into nothing more than a hobby. Today, the system has grown to become a worldwide phenomenon. These days, Linux powers just about every smart thing around us, from Android smartphones, Wi-Fi routers, smart fridges and big screen TVs to airplanes, satellites and the giant Google search engine. Linux is still on nearly 100% of the top 500 supercomputers in the world.

Mascot: Tux is the official mascot of the Linux kernel. Created by Larry Ewing in 1996, it is a chubby penguin that has a satisfied and satiated air. The idea of ​​the Linux mascot being a penguin came from Linus Torvalds himself, creator of the Linux kernel.

Today, we celebrate not just an operating system, but a philosophy that continues to inspire innovation, creativity and the democratization of knowledge. Happy birthday, Linux! May your flame continue to light technology’s path towards a more open, collaborative and promising future.

Also we’re here celebrating together this awesome day where we remember all nostalgic moments we had using Ubuntu! Impreza Team is in a celebrative mood for the day! We all hope you guys have a great time too!
