Linux kernel history and distribution time line

Posted on in Categories GNU/Open source, Links, Linux, Linux distribution last updated June 5, 2007

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

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.
