Much happens in the Linux world over the course of a year. 2004 saw
ongoing legal and political fights, new distributions, big releases of
major applications, a new mode for kernel development, and more. This
timeline is our attempt to separate out the most significant developments
of the year and present them in a concise and enjoyable format. It
continues an annual LWN tradition; it is the seventh in the series.
This is version 0.9 of the 2004 timeline.
If you find any remaining major omissions, please send them
to us at email@example.com; please do
not post errors or omissions as comments until after we have had a chance
to address them.
The development of the LWN.net Linux Timeline was supported by LWN
subscribers; if you like what you see, please consider subscribing to LWN.
As usual, the timeline is split up by month. We apologize that a "one big
page" version is not available at this time.
The LWN.net Linux timelines from the last six years are still available:
