History of linux

Gara gara iseng iseng mo bantuin "adek" tuk nyari semua-hal (ctrl-a) tentang linux eh malah nemu link bagus "" yang ternyata dah dibuat dari tahun 2002 (telat banget, hisk hiks) yang berisikan info mengenai sejarah linux.

Disitu dikatakan bahwa Linus (linus Benedict Torvalds) sendiri pesimis dengan OS yang dia buat
"In August 25, 1991 the historic post was sent to the MINIX news group by Linus .....
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

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, andI'd like to know what features most people would want. Any
suggestions are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)
Linus (
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 :-(

begitu juga dengan komentar dari bapak "minix" Prof.A Tanembaum
" I still maintain the point that designing a monolithic kernel in 1991 is a fundamental error. Be thankful you are not my student. You would not get a high grade for such a design :-)"
(Andrew Tanenbaum to Linus Torvalds)

Hell care , linux sekarang sudah bukan "hacker toys" lagi tapi sudah menjadi salah satu Operating System yang diperhitungkan !

semua berawal dari "ketidakmungkinan" dan "pertentangan" tetapi berakhir dengan "kesuksesan", prosesnya yang akan menentukan !

/me jadi inget waktu bermimpi membuat , "ketidakmungkinan, pertentangan" mudah mudahan berakhir dengan kesuksesan , amin *_^
