ماجرای جالب و عجیبی در
مورد لینوکس و لینوس تروالدس پیش آمده است.
داستان از این جا شروع شد :
Torvalds claim to "invent" Linux probably false, says new study یک خبر در 14
ماه می از یاهو.و بعد از بازی slashdot روی خبر :
The Father Of Linux, According to Report
MrIrwin writes “According to this article on Yahoo, Linus is not the real father of Linux and Open source software is really just code nicked from other sources. “ Groklaw has done a dissection of the press release. It’s a press release by the Alexis de Toqueville Institution, who gets funding from MSFT, as well as believes that US IT troubles are because of free software. Oh, and terrorism works better because of open source, and the “Star Wars” program was a good idea.
و بعد داستان جالب تر
هم شد ، مانند فیلم های سینمایی لینوس یک نامه به LinuxWorld
می زند و این گونه شروع می کند : Ok, I admit it .و با طنزی زیبا این گونه ادامه می
They (for obvious reasons) couldn’t step forward to admit that they had
gotten bitten by the computer bug, and had been developing a series of
operating systems on their own during the off season. But when they
started with Linux (which they originally called Freax – they do feel
like outsiders, you know, and that’s a whole sad story in itself), they
felt that they could no longer just let it languish in obscurity. They
started to look for a front-man, and since Santa Claus is from Finland
and thus has connections to Helsinki University, and the tooth fairy
claimed ‘He’s got good strong teeth,’ I got selected.
و باز slashdot
ادامه می دهد :

یادتون نره که حتما
کامنت های بقیه رو در زیر خبر بخونید !!!
راستی چرا جالب بود؟ چون این موسسه که از اول داستان رو شروع کرد وب سایتش الان
نیست و همون طور که لینوس در نامه خودش نوشته :
Btw, I do believe that somebody took over adti.net.
I don’t think the Alexis de Tocqueville institute ever had
humor (they certainly used to take themselves very seriously), but
their site today is filled with jokes.
Maybe they forgot to pay their DNS registration fee, and
some enterprising person decided to play a joke on them? Or maybe their
clocks are running a month-and-a-half late?
Or is it really unintentional?
امیدوارم فهمیده باشید که چی شد !!!
