Kernel Prepatch 3.11-rc4

Linus has released the 3.11-rc4 prepatch. "I had hoped things would start calming down, but rc4 is pretty much exactly the same size as rc3 was. That said, the patches seem a bit more spread out, and less interesting - which is a good thing. Boring is good." All told,...

Linus's Famous Email

From: mailto: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  (Linus Benedict Torvalds)

To: Newsgroups: comp.os.inix
Subject: What would you like to see most in minix?
Summary: small poll for my new operating system
Message-ID: <mailto: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Hello everybody out there using minix — I’m doing a (free) operating
system (just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu) for 386
(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since april, and is starting to
get ready. I’d like any feedback on things people like/dislike in
minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat (same physical layout of the
file-system (due to practical reasons) among other things).

I’ve currently ported bash (1.08) and gcc (1.40), and things seem to
work. This implies that I’ll get something practical within a few
months, and I’d like to know what features most people would want. Any
suggestions are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them :-).

Linus (mailto: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )

PS. Yes — it’s free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.
It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably
never will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s all I
have :-(.
