Ça y est, Linux a 22 ans.
Alors que l'annonce de la version 3.11-rc7 ne devrait pas tarder, un petit message a été posté sur le compte Google+ de Linux :

Hello everybody out there using Linux -

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, even if it's big and professional) for 486+ AT clones and just about anything else out there under the sun. This has been brewing since april 1991, and is still not ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in Linux 3.11-rc7.

I originally ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), but others have taken over user space and things still seem to work. This implies that I'll get the final 3.11 release within a week, 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 :-)

La version originale du 26 aout 1991 est disponible ici :

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 :-)

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 :-(.

    Et oui, c'est le dimanche 25 août 1991 que le fameux message a été posté et non le 26…

    Et le dimanche 25 août 1991, un jeune allemand arpentait pour un tour seulement le toboggan des Ardennes au volant d'une Jordan dans une belle livrée verte irlandaise. 20 ans plus tard, quand le finlandais peut se vanter d'être leader du plus grand projet informatique de l'histoire en nombre de contributeurs, l'allemand peut se targuer de 7 titres de champion du monde.

    Ah quel beau jour ce 25 août 1991, dommage que je n'ai eu que 6 mois à ce moment là…
