The early days of Linux

Written on May 5, 2023

Nice retrospective from a friend’s of Linus Torvalds (Lars Wirzenius) on how Linux started. I remember digging into the history of Linux several years ago, but I still learned new things in this article.

It’s very nicely written, full of small fun tidbits and anecdotes. I should really subscribe to LWN.
