The Code Linux
Linux is a computer operating system that is regarded as “free and open source”. It was originally designed for personal computers with the Intel x86-based system. Many servers prefer to use Linux more than any other type of system and it’s interesting to note that the Linux was developed from the mind of then 20 year old Linus Torvalds, who was hoping to develop an operating system that was better to work with.
This is his story and the story of how his “hobby”, which he didn’t intend to become as big as how it is today, have evolved and developed over the years.
The documentary takes us to the beginnings of Linux, between the years 1991 to 2001, where a group of computer experts started developing a new system for use in the personal computer.
It profiles Linus and his work, in an attempt to get to know the man behind the development. The funny thing though, because Linux has been made free and available for re-development, Linus has not been given the credit he deserves. No one actually “owns” the system. And yet, perhaps because it is easy to use and understand, the computer world remains to make use of it even today.
