This is Linux atral map, which defines (for who believe) Linux’s personality and future. It was made based on the time the Linux OS was born, took from the e-mail Linus Torvalds sent releasing the first Linux version.

Summary: small poll for my new operating system Message-ID: 1991 Aug 25, 20578.9541@klaava.Helsinki.FI Date: 25 Aug 91 20:57:08 GMT Organization: University of Helsinki.
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-sytem due to practical reasons) among other things.
I’ve currently ported bash (1.08) an 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 want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them 🙂

The astrologist who made the interpretation said many things about Linux “personality”. Some of them:
- He’ll have a lot of money
- He’ll receive many many help from many many people
- He has a kind of a funny personality, like a child (remembers the Tux logo…)
- He has a very speial personality, something you don’t find everyday
