History

  • Linux is a free Unix operating system. Free Unix flavors have been around since the '70s, but Linux is getting a lot more attention than FreeBSD ever did.
  • In 1984, Richard Stallman develops GNU (GNUs Not Unix) which is a popular free Unix.
  • In 1991, Linus Torvalds develops a kernel based on an existing Unix variant called Minix. Torvalds named his version "Linus' Minix" or "Linux" for short (pronounced 'lin-ux').
  • In 1994, Torvalds et al relase version 1.0 of the Linux kernel. Used with Stallman's GNU command-set, users around the world have access to a free Unix variant known as GNU/Linux, or just Linux.
