20 Years of Linux [Infographic]

Linux celebrated it’s 20th birthday this week. During these twenty years Linux has evolved remarkably from an ordinary computer application that could do nothing much than bootin-up a computer to now a full scale and highly featured operating system, which is still free.

Linux Foundation, at the occasion of it’s birthday, released following infographic which pretty much shows the transition that Linux has undergone during the years.

At the end there’s a video as well – to better understand the concept of Linux, just in case if aren’t aware of it’s business rules.

    Is there any statistics how many Linux users are in Pakistan. I’m not talking about casual users who might use it once or twice in a year. The ones who at least have Linux in dual boot.
