Columnist Dave Taylor reminisces about the early days of UNIX and how Linux evolved and grew from that seed.
Twenty five years of Linux Journal. This also marks my 161st column with the magazine too, which means I've been a part of this publication for almost 14 years. Where does the time go?

I promise, the shell ain't going anywhere in the meantime!
