Föredrag med Peter H. Salus i Lund 27/9



Vi (datorföreningen på Lunds universitet) har bjudit in en tungviktare 
som kommer hålla ett intressant föredrag och detta vill vi gärna göra 
lite reklam för. Vi vill gärna se några danska SSLUGare på mötet också :-)

hälsningar

Föredrag med Peter H. Salus

Peter H. Salus kommer hålla ett föredrag, måndagen den 27/9 klockan
19:00 i Kårhuset, LTH, med titeln "The Penguin, the GNU and the Daemon
fight for freedom". Peter H. Salus är bland annat unix-historiker, han
har också varit "vice president of the Free Software Foundation" och 
"Executive Director of the USENIX Association".



In 1969, Unix was invented; the ARPAnet came into being, and Linus
Torvalds was born.

Pre 1.0 versions of Linux were ftp-able in 1992 and 1993. Linux 1.0
was released in March 1994. By that time, BSD had already been into
and out of the US federal court system. By 1994, UNIX spent two of 
its 25 years in court.

But Linux, an upstart juvenile, was truly troublesome.

On June 1, 2001, Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, told the Chicago 
Sun-Times: "Linux is a cancer." In March 2003, The SCO Group filed 
suit against IBM; in August, RedHat filed suit against SCOG; a week 
later, Darl McBride, SCOG CEO, showed a slide of "infringing code" 
to an audience (it turned out to be Berkeley code); SCOG then filed
suit against Novell, then against AutoZone, a chain of car-parts 
stores; and against Daimler-Chrysler.

The next phases of the narrative will be revealed live.
