Linus Torvalds created Linux, but many others, both developers and executives, helped make it the world’s most successful operating system. Here’s how they became involved with Linux.
In 1991, I was already an experienced Unix sysadmin and writer. I’m sure I saw Linus Torvalds’s famous Usenet message: „I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones,“ and I paid it no mind. Many people said similar things and little came of it. This time, it would be different.
