Journal: Samsung will sue Apple tomorrow ?

Journal by a_n_d_e_r_s

Tomorrow looks to be the day of the antipcited Apple release of the iPhone 5 but other sources tell of a threat to people being able to buy an iPhone directly after the announcement as they usually can. Samsung is in the final stages to start a court case against Apple if it is revealed that iPhone 5 support LTA or 4G in its phone.Apple has not licensed LTE from Samsung. Samsung has a large number of patents in the LTE tech and probably do what they can to stop Apple from selling their iPhone 5 on the US and European market according to an exclusive for The Korean Times.

Journal: Linux 20 years from a hobby to world dominance 1

Journal by a_n_d_e_r_s

Today its 20 years ago that Linus Torvalds send a little message to a Minix diskussions group:

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

Linus had a dream to be able to run UNIX like operating system on his home computer. But since none was available he did like many before and after him has done - he started to program it himself. Andra sÃ¥g vad han hade gjort, gillade det och bÃrjade hjÃlpa till att utveckla Linux.

Other saw what he did and liked it and helped him create the world class operating system of today. Every day many and not far from 1 million new CPU for the first time start to run Linux. From the super computers of today to the Linux-distrubution Android in cell phones - they all run Linux. World domination in nearly all ways - well except for the desktop so far.
