Cologne Informer: Linus raves about Linux

Nov 26, 1998, 17:01 (0 Talkback[s])

"When the Finnish student Linus Torvalds wrote a small PC program on a lukewarm summer night in his home town of Helsinki in 1991, he had no idea what would one day rise up out of this small work."

"By 1996, it had grown into a complete operating system: Linux. And since then, it has become a real alternative to Windows 95."

"One salient advantage of Linux--the operating system and much of the software that runs on it are free."
