Happy Birthday! Linux is 30 years old!
Linux began in 1991 as a personal project by Finnish student Linus Torvalds: to create a new free operating system kernel. The resulting Linux kernel has been marked by constant growth throughout its history. Since the initial release of its source code in 1991, it has grown from a small number of C files under a license prohibiting commercial distribution to the 5.13 version in 2021 with more than 29.2 million lines of source code, not counting comments, under the GNU General Public License v2.
We congratulate all Linux followers, developers, and users on this wonderful day!
