Linux celebrates 25 years

On August 25, 1991 Linus Torvalds first announced 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.

Screenshots - August

It’s been a very long time since I posted any screenshots, so without further ado here we go.


My main computer currently runs GNOME. It uses the Arc GTK theme combined with Paper icons and shell theme.

This is i3 (specifically i3-gaps) on my Netbook. i3 is an awesome tiling window manager and it powers all of my older hardware.

Some simplistic Debian and Arch Linux wallpapers

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.
