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 :-(. 

Linux is 24 years old today. In 1996, he told me how it all started.

This is probably one of the greatest "how it works" films ever. On July 2, 1978, the New York Times printed its last edition using its old -- hot-type, lead-casting -- Linotype machines, and switched to the new computer-based systems. As they did this final run, they filmed the whole process, talked with people working on the systems, and showed all the details of how the printing process worked; and then a few months later, they did the same with the new system, to show how they stack up against one another.

The result is by turns fascinating and touching, as people who have worked these machines for decades say farewell to their clanking, mechanical friends.

(I came up in newspapers during the very end of that early digital era, where we would typeset electronically and layout partially by hand, and end up with "camera-ready art" for those electronic Linos which could produce presses. By the time I was in charge of laying out my own paper, the whole layout process was done on computers, and it felt like magic. "Cut" and "Paste" are so much easier when they don't literally involve cutting and pasting. But this will always leave me with a warm feeling for these old machines, and a slight sadness that I never had a chance to work in lead)

English version (Voyez plus bas pour le français)

  • I'm a scientific and technical journalist, a freelance writer and a webmaster. In other words, I'm a web scientist and a printer of electrons.
  • I used to be a biologist and a zoo keeper and to this day I've kept a strong interest in natural sciences. And yes, I can truly say that Charlie is my Darwin!
  • In my free time, I contribute to an amateur theatre association by directing some plays, as an actor or as a technician. You can come and see us at the Théâtre de la Cité de Fribourg.
  • I live in Fribourg (Switzerland), a nice and still human-sized bilingual city (French/German), but was born and grew up in a small village called Origlio, in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland.
  • If you wish to contact me, I can understand French, Italian, English and German: your  choice!
