20th anniversary of the first Linux post

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)."

10th Circuit Affirms in All Respects (Groklaw)

In case anybody was worried about the SCO Group's appeal with regard to ownership of the Unix copyrights: Groklaw carries the news that the US 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the lower court judgment in all respects. "So, SCO loses again, and likely this is as far as it will go. Technically, SCO can ask the US Supreme Court to hear a further appeal, but that is very unlikely to happen and even less likely to be granted were it to happen." After all these years, it's hard to say that it is over, but, just maybe, it's over.
