On August 25, 1991, Linus Torvalds made a now-famous post
to the comp.os.minix newsgroup that announced a new free operating system. We have certainly come a long way since then (note the "bang" (!) path in the headers in the posting for instance). "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).
