Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Linux with us. Watch the Story of Linux to remember – or learn for the first time – how Linux disrupted a market and has begun to change the world. Do you see yourself in its story?

The computer operating system Linux was introduced in August 1991. It was made available freely but has fueled a number of businesses. How can this be?


I encourage to watch this brief video to appreciate Linux as an entrepreneurial success story.

From the video, Linux provides users with:

The freedom to use the software for any purpose.

The freedom to change the software to suit your needs.

The freedom to share the software with your friends and neighbors.

The freedom to share the changes you make.

Can this exemplar of open innovation be applied to other industries? I certainly hope so.

If you would like to be part of this celebration, you can upload videos and stories of your own experiences with Linux here.

    Linux will become certainly older than Windows. If we look sometimes.

    The classic four freedoms. *Provided* by the innovative use of copyright law invented by Richard Stallman, realised in the GPL license, and *exploited* by Linux, among many, many others.

    Linux is the way forward, Microsoft Windows is struggling to keep up with the times, the latest reports and figures display this quite clearly.
