Video commemorating the 20th Anniversary of Linux

Linux is born in April 1991, with Linus Torvalds making it public with the following post on minix newsgroups:

Hello everybody out there using minix –
I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones.

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 :-(.

Today, Linux is powering all kind of devices from supercomputer, stock exchange servers to smartphones, smart tv, cars and anything you can think of.
