Happy 24th birthday Linux!

Swapnil Bhartiya | Aug. 26, 2015
Over the last 24 years, Linux has become the largest shared technology on earth and has popularized a revolution called open source, which is changing our world in more ways than we can imagine.

I've currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work. 
This implies that I'll get something practical within a few months, and
I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions
are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)

PS. Yes - it's free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs. 
It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never
will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that's all I have :-(.

Happy birthday Linux!
