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.

Here's how it grew. From Freax to Linux

Functional Programming vs. Imperative Programming This topic compares and contrasts functional programming with more traditional imperative (procedural) programming. The functional programming paradigm was explicitly created to support a pure functional approach to problem solving. Functional programming is a form of declarative programming. In contrast, most mainstream languages, including object-oriented programming (OOP) languages such as C#, Visual Basic, C++, and Java –, were designed to primarily support imperative (procedural) programming. overview · abrt/abrt Wiki ABRT overview Description ABRT is a set of tools to help users detect and report problems. It's main purpose is to ease the process of reporting an issue and finding a solution. The solution in this context means:
