Présentation du système Linux The history of Linux began in 1991 with the onset of the personal project of a Finnish student, Linus Torvalds, who created the nucleus of a new operating system. Before talking about Linux it would be good to talk a little about the history of the Unix kernel that has been designed and implemented in the years 1960 at the Bell Laboratories under the leadership of Ken Thomson and a small group of researchers from these laboratories to then be released in 1969 for internal use in our labs. The development of the C language by Dennis Ritchie allowed writing a version ofUnix in this high-level language and therefore portable a priori on any type of machine that has a compiler for this language.

AV Linux Overview: AV Linux is NOT a Linux Distribution in the ‘proper’ sense… It is a freely shared 32 and 64bit downloadable and installable ISO Image created from a carefully pre-configured snapshot of the Debian GNU/Linux “Testing” Distribution. This ISO image is provided to facilitate and initiate the use of Linux as an Audio/Video/Graphics content creation platform. AV Linux is essentially a collected showcase of the phenomenal work of Open-Source developers from all over the planet and celebrates and presents their work organized in an easy-to-use fashion. In addition to a hardware-friendly efficient XFCE4 Desktop a low-latency Audio environment is provided with a custom ‘RT’ kernel and JACK Audio Connection Kit. March of the Penguin: Ars looks back at 20 years of Linux The Linux kernel was originally created by Linus Torvalds, a Finnish computer science student, and first announced to the world on August 25, 1991—exactly 20 years ago today. At the time, Torvalds described his work as a "hobby" and contended that it would not be "big and professional" like the GNU project. But the Linux kernel turned out to be one of the most significant pieces of open source software ever developed. Over the past two decades, it has grown from a humble hobby project into a global phenomenon that runs on everything from low-cost e-book readers to a majority of the world's supercomputers.

Thinstation Thinstation is a basic and small, yet very powerful, Open Source thin client operating system supporting all major connectivity protocols: Citrix ICA, NoMachine NX, 2X ThinClient, Microsoft Windows terminal services (RDP, via RDesktop), VMWare Horizon View, Cendio ThinLinc, Tarantella, X, telnet, tn5250, VMS terminal and SSH (No special configuration of the application servers is needed to use Thinstation). Thinstation is mainly intended for schoolroom, office, company or department use, but can be used at home (eg. for a silent PC in the bedroom that 'runs' XP on your workstation in the back room). While Thinstation is based on Linux, users may actually never see Linux at all. If you decide to connect directly to a Microsoft Windows, Citrix or Unix server, the user will feel that they are running directly on the server. But, you can also have a local Desktop interface (with a local Browser & other tools). Thinstation runs on ordinary PC hardware (32/64 bit i686 class).

Hi, I use to love Linux Mint until Linux Mint didn't want to play nice anymore with my computer. I was forced to switch to Fedora 14 then 15. Both are rock-solid OS. by heatvision Jun 6
