Linux Journal: Linux Timeline
Jul 17, 2002, 19:00 (4 Talkback[s])
[Editor's Note: We at Linux Today congratulate all of the
staff both past and present at Linux Journal for reaching
their 100th Issue! This publication has been a key factor in
bringing technical information and Linux advocacy to the IT
community at large, and we wish them great success in their future
"As part of our 100th issue celebration, we present 100 of the
most significant events in Linux history. As shown in the timeline,
the first issue of Linux Journal coincided with the release of
Linux 1.0. Ever since, the fortunes of our magazine have followed
those of Linux at large.
"It's been a wild eight years, filled with a variety of exciting
events. Choosing only 100 was a difficult task, and certainly some
readers will be quick to point out events they would have chosen
that we did not, but the following manages to maintain the
roller-coaster ride that is Linux history.
"We would like to recognize our indebtedness to Rebecca Sobol
and Jonathan Corbet at Linux Weekly News, for allowing us to borrow
heavily from the timeline featured on their site and for their
accurate and gracious historical editing..."
