The super awesome Linux turns 20 [video]

It's been 20 years since Linus Torvalds created the most powerful piece of software, the Linux Kernel. Today Linux runs on a wide variety of computer hardware, ranging from mobile phones, tablet computers and video game consoles, to mainframes and supercomputers. Linux is a leading server operating system, and runs the 10 fastest supercomputers in the world; since November 2010, out of the top 500 systems, 459 (91.8%) run a Linux distribution. Linux was also selected as the operating system for the world's most powerful supercomputer, IBM's Sequoia.


Major film studios including Dreamworks Animation, Pixar, Weta Digital, and Industrial Light & Magic have migrated to Linux. According to the Linux Movies Group, more than 95% of the servers and desktops at large animation and visual effects companies use Linux.


Here's a video by the Linux Foundation made on the occasion of it's 20th birthday. Enjoy!
