Um camarada lista CISSPBR nos lembrou um pouco da história dos Sistemas Operacionais. Para os fãs do mundo Linux, isso é uma oração:

“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
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 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 🙂

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 :-(. “

Para quem possui o inglês enferrujado, este o email do Linus Torvalds, aos 18 anos de idade, se eu não estou enganado, dizendo que tinha criado um novo sistema operacional, o Linux..

Depois disso, o mundo não foi mais o mesmo.
