It has been an incredible year for Linux. I can’t possibly list every amazing milestone but here are a few that we won’t soon forget:
* Linux kernel 3.0 released
* Android surpassed iOS globally
* IBM celebrated its centennial
* The cracking of kernel.org
* The release of Amazon’s Kindle Fire
And, last but not least, the Linux operating system turned 20-years-old this year. We don’t let any excuse to party pass us by so we hosted a 20th Anniversary of Linux Gala in Vancouver, B.C. at LinuxCon. It was a grand party attended by many, including Linux creator Linus Torvalds.
We want to offer one more chance to secure your memento from this important year, so we’re hosting a Linux Trivia game through the end of 2011. Each week, we’ll post a Linux Trivia question on our Twitter, Identi.ca, Facebook and Google+ channels. Reply with the correct response and be entered into a weekly drawing to win two 20th Anniversary of Linux T-shirts.
The correct responses to each question will be found on Linux.com, LinuxFoundation.org or…in your head. Trivia questions will be posted every Wednesday around 11 a.m. PT. The game begins today and will run through December 28, 2011.
Here’s to celebrating an incredible year!
