Happy 15th Birthday Linux ??

Last Friday that's march 13th, Gizmodo wanted us to celebrated the 15th birthday of Linux. Kinda weird... as about 15 years ago I was already using Linux ....

Fact is that the 1.0 release of Linux just had it's 15th birthday , but Linux itself is heading towards its 18th in september.

Getting old ..both of us :)

So when trying to catch up on my Linux Journal reading I ran into the 15 years of Linux Journal article, which makes a lot more sense than 15 year of Linux.

The fun part being Shawn's adapted Bio

In 1994, Shawn was attending his first year of college at Michigan Tech University. He skipped his engineering classes almost every day to sneak into the computer labs and play with Linux. At the time it seemed a waste of tuition, but looking back, he wouldn't change a thing.

Now pipe that trough s/Shawn/Kris/g and s/college at Michigan Tech University/KULeuven/g .. simlar story there ...

My LJ subscription is up for renewal... not sure what I`m going to do .. I haven't been reading it from front to back anymore as I used to, I`m usually running 3-4 issues behind on reading .. And by that time I can read everything online anyhow...

Helping Sun to figure out what it wants to do when it grows up

I have to admit I`m lagging a bit on my Linux Journal reading.
So just now I read Maddog's article titled Navigating by the Sun

Bull's Eye .. I loved reading every second of it as it is so true ... I told you folks earlier that we'd love to help, but it really is time for Sun to figure out what it wants to be when it grows up :)

It's fear it's either that or down the drain with the other bunch of companies that are on the road to obsoletion.
