Cooking with Linux
This list could go on and on, but I believe to have made my point by now. As a matter of fact, most Linux users won't remember those important milestones of Linux development such as, oh, the introduction of the VFS layer, the original implementation of shared libraries, and the first version of the Extended Filesystem. But let sleeping dogs lie.
If this brief excursion into the dark annals of Linux history has taught you one thing, it is that you should be grateful for those foolhearty pioneers that worked for peanuts to blaze the trail for the masses to follow. They had to edit their kernel images by hand, and walk five miles in the snow—barefoot—just to upload the newest set of patches, you know.
And the next time you consider complaining that running Lucid Emacs 19.05 via NFS from a remote Linux machine in Paraguay doesn't seem to get the background colors right, you'll know who to thank.
