Linux is 20 years old!

8. Apr 2011 | Jos Poortvliet | No License

We have two birthdays this week! While on April 6th GNOME 3 was born, another kid became 20 years old! The Linux Foundation celebrates the 20th anniversary of Linux with among other things a video contest. We already mentioned it but it’s now time to get those video’s to the Linux Foundation!


The video should be 60 second long and celebrate the 20th Anniversary by showing the impact of Linux on culture and IT over the last 20 years. The more inspiring you can make it, the better!

The winner of this year’s 20th Anniversary of Linux Video Contest will win airfare, registration and hotel expenses to attend one of the following events of their choice: LinuxCon North America, LinuxCon Europe, SXSW 2012 or the LA Film Festival. The winning video will be unveiled at LinuxCon in Vancouver BC August 17-19, 2011.

Ranking is based on community voting with the final decision being made by uber-penguin Linus Torvalds himself!


However, the Linux Foundation does more: all events where they have a booth will have recording equipment where you can record a message and share your favorite Linux moment or talk about the future. There will also be a series of articles on [trainings](//</a></a> about Linux.

Finally, the Linux Foundation is working to set up a special series of <a href=) for Linux professionals.


We’re surely proud of our Penguin! Join the celebration and visit the Linux Foundation 20th birthday site.

I'll be celebrating 20 years of Linux with The Linux Foundation!
