Heute exakt vor 25 Jahren hat Linus Torvalds folgende Nachricht veröffentlicht und damit ein neues Zeitalter der Informationsverarbeitung eingeläutet. In dieses ungewöhnliche Orchester haben sich im Laufe dieser langen Zeit etwa 13500 Entwickler und Entwicklerinnen eingebracht und rund 1300 Firmen sind daraus erwachsen. Alles Gute zum Geburtstag Linux!

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 :-(

Den Rest dieser epochalen Diskussion findet man hier:
