Happy birthday, Linux

Twenty years ago today, as the wold watch the Soviet Union break up, a Finnish student, Linus Torvalds released the first bit of code that became the Linux — named for him — kernel.

If you use Linux on the desktop, an Android device or are reading this — I use a Linux host; most of the web is served this way — then give a moment’s thought and a bit of thanks.
