La multi ani, Linux!

In 1991 Linus anunta[1] ca lucreaza la un sistem de operare, doar un hobby, nu mare si profesional ca GNU. :-)

22 de ani mai tarziu Linux nu numai ca a cucerit lumea si ruleaza pe servere, televizoare, telefoane, ceasuri, spatii internationale si chiar si pe unele fructe de padure[2], dar a si demonstrat ca metoda "open source" este cea mai buna - o adevarata revolutie care a eliberat planeta!

Linus ne anunta cu aceasta ocazie[3] de publicarea RC7 de la kernelul 3.11:

Hello everybody out there using Linux -

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, even if it's big and professional) for 486+ AT clones and just about anything else out there under the sun. This has been brewing since april 1991, and is still not ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in Linux 3.11-rc7.

I originally ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), but others have taken over user space and things still seem to work. This implies that I'll get the final 3.11 release within a week, and I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)
