〈PORTING UNIX TO THE 386〉十五週年
作業系統「考古迷」的 ghost 兄分享了 [PORTING UNIX TO THE 386: A PRACTICAL APPROACH
In June of 1989 in Berlin, Germany much was about to change. What most don't know was what this had to do with the topic of "Open Source".
William Jolitz was doing two week long seminars. The "wall" was a good symbol for the problem of open development with closed systems.
What would happen if there was an open system, ... like ... perhaps ... bsd?
So we tried it ... and wrote about it as it happened ... the rest you know. Or do you?
- Would it be popular?
- Would it be stable?
- Would it develop into something?
Magazine articles are heavily editted, and there was much that couldn't fit. Here is a chance to restore what happened 15 years ago. Every month we'll release another of the articles ... and with help, restore the details.
] 與 [Lynne Jolitz
] 是 [386BSD
] 的作者，十五年前將 4BSD 移植到 i386 (16MHz 386 PC) 的相關文件可參考 [Porting_UNIX_to_the_386_Series()
]。此外，Rachel Chalmers 撰寫的文章 [The unknown hackers
] ，這裡的 "unknown" 意有所指地就是對比 Linux kernel 的高知名度，而我們當然不能忘記這個事實：
Linus Torvalds himself name-checked their O.S. "If 386BSD had been available when I started on Linux," he said, "Linux would probably never have happened."
If the glory of being Torvalds evaded them, the Jolitzes certainly helped prepare the way.
除了參考之前 blog [UNIX 家族簡介
] 外，Michael G. Brown 撰寫的短文 [The Role of BSD in the Development of Unix
] 也很值得參考 (最好也對照圖表)。
