Let’s start with a boring but essential part of Linux. Well for starters you may not like it but by the end of the series, you are gonna love Linux.
History Of Linux:
- 1969 – Two engineers of AT&T Bell Labrotires Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie started Unix Operating System.
- 1977 – A team of University of California, Berkeley created the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD).
- 1993 – A student of Helsinki, Finland; Linus Torvalds developed the Kernel (the heart of Linux)
This is long history in short version. Anyone can know more about the full history from Wiki the greatest encyclopedia.
