Newsgroups: comp.os.minix From: [email protected] (Linus Benedict Torvalds) Date: 25 Aug 91 20:57:08 GMT 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 :-) Linus ([email protected]) 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.
