The Linux kernel became 17

Yes, 17 years ago Linus Torvalds posted the first piece of information related to his open source project.The message was posted in the russian google group on 26/08/1991, 09:12 by Linus Benedict Torvalds and you can see it here.

So this is quite an important date for the community that supported and still supports the idea behind open source.At the current moment 85% of the Top 500 most powerful computers in the world are running Linux – how cool is that:)
