I was just answering a question on our forum:

When was Linux version 2.4 released?

A quick online search result into interesting set of information:
=> Google Linux kernel timeline (pretty accurate)

=> History of the Linux kernel

=> Linux distro time line graph
Linux distro (distribution) time line from kde web site
(click to enlarge)

On a related note try to read "Just for Fun: The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary" - a humorous autobiography of Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux.

It should be noted that Arch is not actually based off of any distribution, it is purely inspired by CRUX but takes nothing from it in reality.
