You almost fooled me Canonical but I should have known better! Thanks for showing me the truth +Bryan Lunduke​! Great article!
My take on +Canonical's recent press release that "Universal 'snap' packages launch on multiple Linux distros".

Other possible headline for this article:
"The Suggestion of Collaboration is the Causation for Frustration"

YES! I love this movie! It was one of my first DVDs and it was double sided! You had to flip it over half way through the movie!

Just a happy birthday to something that will never be "big and professional". #Linux

Subject: What would you like to see most in minix?
Summary: small poll for my new operating system

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 :-)

Linus (

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

Pretty cool to see my 3 year old play one of my favorite games that came out over ten years before she was born!
