Linux Grow’s in Age, Size, Professionality.

Linux Turns 25, Is Bigger and More Professional Than Ever

The Linux operating system kernel is 25 years old this month, 

 It was August 25, 1991 when Linus Torvalds posted his famous message announcing the project, claiming that Linux was “just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu.” From the article:But now, Linux is far bigger and more professional than Torvalds could have imagined. 

Linux powers huge portions of the Internet’s infrastructure, corporate data centers, websites, stock exchanges, the world’s most widely used smartphone operating system, and nearly all of the world’s fastest supercomputers. The successes easily outweigh Linux’s failure to unseat Microsoft and Apple on PCs, but Linux has still managed to get on tens of millions of desktops and laptops and Linux software evenruns on Windows.Do you use any Linux-based operating system? Share your experience with it. What changes would you want to see in it in the next five years?
