adam akilli kisiler #1 – Linus Torvalds

Linus Torvalds

Linux çekirdeğinin bulucusu. Dünyada bir çığır açacak bu işletim sisteminin çekirdeğini yazmaya tamamen spontane ve zevk amaçlı başlayan Linus Torvalds, çıkan ürünün sonunda şu anki haline varacağını bilmiyordu.

Kendisi aynı zamanda bin yılın teknoloji ödülünün de sahibi oldu.

linuxfoundation.org adlı sitede anasayfada gösterilen, Linuxun nasıl üretildiğini anlatan aşağıdaki kısa videoyu seyretmenizi öneririm.

Ayırca Wikipedia’daki Linus Torvalds içeriğine de bakmanızı önerebilirim.

Summary: small poll for my new operating system

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, andI’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 :-(.
