Subject: What would you like to see most in minix?

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 :-(.

Esta é a mensagem que assinalou ao mundo o começo dessa aventura que é o Linux. Foi publicado exactamente há 20 anos atrás no newsgroup comp.os.minix.

É fantástica a humildade do inicio daquele que é um dos principais sistemas operativos actuais (em particular no mundo dos servidores).

Parabéns Linux e obrigada Linus por esta contribuição para a informática moderna.
