Minix hack to Linux

I just read an interesting post with a reference to a newsgroup post from Linus Benedict Torvalds.  On October 5, 1991 about the new “free version of a minix-lookalike.” Beware it’s only for developers hackers !

Interesting excerpt from the post,

This is a program for hackers by a hacker.  I’ve enjouyed doing it, and somebody might enjoy looking at it and even modifying it for their own needs.

Doesn’t that remain the state of Linux today ?
