I found this neat little newsgroup thread index about Minix vs Linux from 1992. Enjoy :)

ha, the sweet early nineties...
look at this signature:

Michael Kaufman | I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on
kaufman        | fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in
  @eecs.nwu.edu | the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be
                | lost in time - like tears in rain. Time to die.    Roy Batty

it comes from blade runner..

Tanenbaum has a lot of valid points, though, and Linus is one very rude and arrogant kid...

Linus is one very rude and arrogant kid...

So that's your problem with Linux ;) This doesn't mean that Linux can't be good...

Read this article from Tannenbaum: "Father of MINIX," Andy Tanenbaum, on Kenneth Brown's Claims Re Linux
Any of you with contacts in the media are actively encouraged to point reporters to this page and my original statement to provide some balance. I really think Brown's motivation should come under scrutiny.

Read this too: Andrew S. Tanenbaum's FAQ
You can read here, what does Tanenbaum think about Linux.

FreeBSD, the way LINUX was meant to be.  :shock:
