Hari ini (25 Agustus 2011, waktu Eropa sana), 20 tahun yang lalu. Seseorang dari Finlandia telah mengirimkan sebuah surel yang di kemudian hari akan mengubah dunia.

“From: torvalds@klaava.Helsinki.FI (Linus Benedict Torvalds)
Newsgroups: comp.os.minix
Subject: What would you like to see most in minix?
Summary: small poll for my new operating system
Message-ID: <1991Aug25.205708.9541@klaava.Helsinki.FI>
Date: 25 Aug 91 20:57:08 GMT
Organization: University of Helsinki

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 onthings 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 🙂
Linus (torvalds@kruuna.helsinki.fi)

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 😦

So, our Penguin is 20 years old now. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINUX!

  1. Uhu…terharu sekali rasanya. Ayo Mas, sebagai pemuda juga, kita bikin perubahan. Barangkali bisa memberikan kontribusi ke seluruh dunia seperti Om Torvalds. 🙂

    Rendah hati dan bertangan dingin:

    Seperti itulah kita orang sumber terbuka kalau mau bekerja keras. Aku harap kita enggak pernah sombong dengan apa yang kita miliki atau karyakan.

    Salam hormat, Mas Rottyu.

    • Setidaknya mensosialisasikan penggunaan sistem operasi buatan Om Torvalds ini ke masyarakat, itu juga sudah kontribusi kan?
