”The Linux philosophy is ‘Laugh in the face of danger’.
Oops. Wrong One. ‘Do it yourself’. Yes, that’s it.”
25 years ago, Linus Torvalds had the idea for a free operating system. According to him, this idea was the result of a mix of programming skills and boredom, combined with the fact that he was a bit of a geek.
He didn’t want to change the world with his idea – he was simply tired of the exisiting systems and believed they were not good enough. And, frankly speaking, he just enjoyed programming. Eventually, this personal idea grew to become this huge project called Linux. 25 years later, it is continuously growing under the collaboration of people from all around the world.
Today, Linux is widely used across a large variety of systems including servers, mobile phones, mainframe computers and supercomputers.
Hold on to your idea like Torvalds did – who knows how big it will become one day.
