Happy birthday Linux

Today is the "birthday" of Linux:

From: torvalds@klaava.Helsinki.FIN (Linus Benedict Torvalds)
Summary: small poll for my new operating system
Date: 25 Aug. 1991 20:57:08 GMT
Organization: University of Helsinki

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like GNU) for 386 AT clones.

This year Linus asked 90 companies in Australia to purchase a license from the Linux Mark Institute. Wonder what surprises are in store for us next year when Linux turns 15.
