Did he actually not get along? I ask because I keep hearing about this whole bitter rivalry between the two, yet whenever I actually read anything from either party, it's just "creative differences" about kernel architecture. I might be wrong, but I get the distinct feeling that this whole "bad blood" thing is pure press spin. I mean, if I was to hate everyone who had a different opinion to me on something, I'd live a lonely life laughingsmiley.gif

Or is there more to the story than just kernel design. Did Tanenbaum sleep with Torvalds sister or something? hehe

AFAIK it really wasn't; it simply started out just as an experiment for Linus to learn the then new 386 architecture.

There was a fairly heated discussion on usenet at the time Linux was new between Linus and Tanenbaum (and a bunch of other people, of course) debating the merits of both kernels and systems. That's been blown out of proportion I think - they've both several times stated that it was nothing personal and AFAIK they've never had any getting along issues.

Yeah, there's no rivalry between them, nor was there ever. Linus wrote Linux at first as a kind of way to look at every possible feature the 386 provides, then as the Minix hobbyists started preferring it to Minix as it was completely free. Minix these days is also free, and a decent OS for basic server tasks with its high reliability.

It is UNIX in the sense of what we call UNIX today. However technically UNIX is dead and it's all just compliant to the standards.
