On August 25, 1991 Linus Torvalds first
his operating system to the world via the comp.os.minix news group:
“I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones.”
I honestly can’t believe it is twenty-five years old already.
Linux really has come a long way since I first laid my eyes upon it in the late
’90s and I’d like to take this moment to thank Linus and everyone who has ever
contributed to Linux in any capacity for helping create the great operating
system we have today.
I wanted some relatively simple Linux distribution centric wallpapers, but I
couldn’t find any I really liked that also had a clearly stated permissive
license attached to them so I made one for the two distributions that I use.
Both wallpapers are CC BY-SA 4.0
licensed, so feel free to use and adapt them as you see fit.
