Linux Astral Map

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.

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 🙂

Linux Torvalds

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

  1. Saturn conjunct to the cusp of the eighth house, opposing the second, only much money was not promising; which, I think, has become true ( it still remains free ).
    Anyway, Sun conjunct Venus-Jupiter promises longevity and popularity.
