As I entered in the world of open-source by adopting Unix / Linux on my passion list, few basic things which I highlighted in the beginning were written down on a piece of paper. Thought to pool it down for my memories.
Unix / Linux
- Minix – Unix like operating system before Linux
- Unix – developed by Bill Labs
- BSD – Popular distribution from University of California at Barkley
- Main Purpose – Multitasking system for minicomputers
- Linux originally developed by Linux Torvalds, began work in 1991 as a student in Finland at University of Helsinki
- Linux Kernel - Lowest level core component is still maintained by Linus Torvalds
- March 1994 – Version 1.0 finally was appeared.
- Text Formatter (TeX) was by Donald Knutn
- Linux is an inexpensive, efficient and robust system.
Hope you have got the vision of how basically we all started, like I have done. Share your experience for more fun.
