  1. (T)orvolds (U)ni(X) --> TUX! An Introduction to Linux By Neil Light, KK4VHX

  2. 1983 - GNU's Not Unix 1985 - Free Software Foundation Richard Stallman FOSS

  3. 25 August 1991: 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). Linus Torvalds The Father of Linux

  4. Flexible • Scalable • No Security by Obscurity • No Vendor Lock-in • If you don't like it, fix it! Why Linux?

  5. Bootloader – After POST, initializes boot device and passes control to the kernel • Kernel – Provides the mechanism for application code to execute, to share resources, and to access file systems and hardware. • Applications – Command interpreters, compilers, utilities, GUI components, word processors, web browsers, etc... What is Linux?

  7. File based – Data, devices, and processes are all represented by files. • Modular – Hardware and file systems are supported by plugging code into the kernel. • Portable – New architectures are supported by porting source code and recompiling the kernel. Kernel
