The Story of Linux (on the occasion of its 20th anniversary)


Few things say “geek cred” as loudly as invoking the Linux lifestyle. Those of us who are embedded in its use understand the inherent beauty within its complex nature, the warm and devastating force within its simplicity, and the sheer power that the open source movement has acquired since its casual launch in 1991.

To celebrate the anniversary, the Linux Foundation has put together some material for us all to help look back at the last 20 years. Watch this video and then examine the infographic they designed – both are clever enough to carry the Linux badge. Speaking of badges, you can help commemorate the anniversary by adding the badge at the bottom to your website.
