Linus Torvalds


All right. I know Linux first then this guy. So funny. Because Linux is known for most of computing students.

I think most of computing students are familiar with Linus and most of them are currently using OS with Linux kernel like Ubuntu and Fedora. In a interview, Linus said he used Fedora distribution because of the good support for the PowerPC processor architecture.

The first prototypes of Linux were publicly released later 1991. In this prototype, Linux is just a OS running commands in the terminal. It does not like some modern OS running under graphical desktop environment. When the desktop environment is included in the Linux then the Version 1.0 wax released(on 14, 1994).

There is a app or software called Git, which is founded by Linus. I knew this software a few years ago but I did not know what it is for. This year we are required to launch a group project and the lecture recommends us to use Git in teamwork. So now I know what it is about.
