Happy 30th Birthday, Linux!
Marius Nestor celebrates Linux’s 30th birthday with a good champagne, a delicious cake and a brief recount of 30 freaking awesome years of the inherently secure and increasingly popular Linux OS - and many more to come!
That’s right, it’s been 30 years since 21-year-old Finnish student Linus Benedict Torvalds made his now-famous announcement on the day of August 25th, 1991, on the comp.os.minix news group, saying that he is working on a free operating system for 386(486) AT clones as a “hobby.”
Well, that “hobby” turned into something massive in only 30 years (how time flies), and Linux now powers almost every smart device around you, including your Android smartphone, Amazon Alexa and Google Home smart assistants, big screen TV, smart fridge, smart lights, and especially your Wi-Fi router.
