#305: Il blog di Linus Torvalds. Finalmente un blog degno veramente di essere letto.

Assolutamente da segnalare! Il blog di Linus Torvalds, il creatore del Kernel di Linux:

una lacrimuccia

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 :-(.
