Hash: SHA1

Linux 2.6.29-rc8

,----[ Quote ]
| This -rc isn't any more interesting than most, although I have to say that 
| personally, it was interesting to see that we have actually been hitting a  
| Atom CPU errata, and it took some effort from people to hunt it down.  That 
| was interesting, if only because it's a pretty rare occurrence.   


Happy Birthday, Linux!

| Strictly speaking, Linux was officially unveiled in September of 1991 with 
| version 0.01. That’s a more accurate “birth day” for Linux, which makes it 18 
| years old later this year. Hopefully Linux will exercise its newfound 
| adulthood by buying cigarettes and pornography, and voting!   
| This year also sees the 40th birthday of UNIX! UNIX is like the cool, aging 
| hipster uncle that inspired Linux to grow up into such a badass. 



Richard Stallman looks back at 25 years of the GNU project

,----[ Quote ]
| On September 27, 1983, Richard M. Stallman announced his intention to found
| the GNU project in order to build a free operating system. Now, 25 years
| later, the Free Software Foundation is marking the anniversary of the
| announcement with a month-long celebration. Looking back at the last quarter
| century, Stallman expresses some guarded satisfaction with the growth of the
| free software movement, but also some bemusement about how it has grown more
| complex as it has faced new challenges from within and without, and an
| awareness of how far it still has to go to reach its goals.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
