Linux celebrates its 30th birthday: On September 17, 1991, Linus Torvalds put the first version of his operating system kernel online, a good four weeks after he had made his work on it public. To this day, the free operating system has become one of the most important pillars in the software world. Torvalds still has the development firmly under control and, thanks to some peculiarities of Linux, can fall back on an impressive arsenal of helpers who keep adding new features. At the same time, everything runs as predictable as clockwork. Meanwhile, the size of the kernel continues to grow. In a new episode of the #heiseshow we talk to our expert Thorsten Leemhuis about the importance of Linux and how it will continue in the foreseeable future.
How is Linux doing? What is the current focus of development? How will it go on? What milestones have shaped the past 30 years? What distinguishes Linux from other operating systems, how can its success be explained? How important is Linus Torvalds, how important is the many volunteers? Where is it still a problem? How has the relationship with the classic IT groups changed recently, especially Microsoft?
The show is produced by Michael Wieczorek (@avavii).
