Minix – The Inspiration to Linux

Last week, while searching on the Internet, I came across the site for “Minix”. Minix is a free Unix Clone, that Mr.Andrew S. Tanenbaum wrote in 1987, as an example to his accompanying Operating System book. Since then his book has become the “Bible” for anyone working OS/Kernel design and Minix has hence inspired several Unix clones to emerge, including now popular “Linux”.
