The History of Linux from Linux Support Specialists, LinuxIT
Ever wondered how Linux came about? Who the parties responsible for its inception and ascendancy to the pinnacle of Open Source lore were? How Linux has gone from David to Goliath and superseded the big, closed source companies in certain markets?
Wonder no more, as our eGuide 'From Classroom to Boardroom – the Linux Journey' picks out the key moments in the Linux evolution and highlights how this once diminutive 10,000 lines of code is now used to further scientific understanding of mankind and where we, the human race as a whole, came from.
With more than 1,000 contributing developers now actively helping to improve the Linux kernel upon each release, and the lines of code having passed the 15m mark, it's a rags to riches story that celebrates innovation and the principles of freedom above profit, upon which the Open Source movement was founded.
