The GNU project was announced September 27, 1983 – 31 years ago. While the video by Stephen Fry is six years old the context is similar.
The Linux kernel was announced August 25, 1991 – 23 years ago. We share the 20th anniversary video on the front of our web page as an introduction to newcomers.
I hope people can learn a bit more during the upcoming annual Software Freedom Day and join me in focusing on the benefits and common parts of software we run today. The histories of FOSS (including GNU) and linux are views of the same story, like it or not. Each story is incomplete without the other.
