What ever happened to that little OS that we used to hear so much about?
Written by Barry L. Kline
On August 25, 1991, Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux operating system, sent the fateful message to USENET announcing his creation. On August 25, 2012, the OS will be 21 years old. If Linux were human and an American citizen, it would then be old enough to consume adult beverages, carry concealed weapons (at least in Pennsylvania), and have all of the privileges of U.S. citizenship, with the exclusion of becoming the President. My, how our beloved OS has grown!
