20 years of Linux

Thanks Tux.

I ran my first Linux distribution, (from Manchester Computing Centre) on a 386 processor, 20 years ago this year. This was console based only, so no X-Windows.

This was also the first ever Linux distribution, and was called the MCC Interim Linux distribution.

Since then i’ve run/managed RHEL, CentOS, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, Slackware, Gentoo, SuSE, SPARC Linux, SunOS, Solaris, OpenSolaris, SCO Unix, HP-UX, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NeXTSTEP, OS X and a number of other Unix/Linux flavours in almost every possible use case/scenario imaginable.
