    Thats crazy.

    I remember playing around with Slackware back in 1996(7) and at that time I was learning things like how to get my optical drive to work as it was hooked upto my creative labs sound card.

    Hats off to Linus and the countless developers since 1991 that have made the kernel flourish.
