Sedamnaestog rujna 1991. godine je Linus Torvalds najavio prvu verziju Linuxa 0.0.1. Sve ostalo nam je dobro poznata povijest.
Citat:
Hello everybody out there using minix -
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).
I've currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work. This implies that I'll get something practical within a few months, 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

PS. Yes – it's free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs. It is NOT portable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that's all I have .


Zanimljivo je da je Linus Torvalds svoj operativni sustav mislio nazvati Freax, kao kombinacija od Freak, free i X te ga je pod tim nazivom spremao oko pola godine. Ime Linux je inicijalno odbacio jer mu je zvučalo previše egoistično. Linusov kolega Ari Lemmke je svo vrijeme inzistirao na činjenici da je Freax loše ime pa je Linus na kraju prihvatio tu činjenicu i nazvao ga Linux.
