Linux 0.01 reminiscence

Yesterday, just like always I was slacking around the net and decided to look into Linux development history. So, I took 0.01 sources and started looking through it. Even without good knowledge of i386 and C, this code looks just really good. I'm happy Linus actually made it to this state. Well, he was born a real hardcore hacker, there's no way he couldn't make it
Just looking at these sources is a pleasure.
I also found this thread, to help you building/running Linux 0.01 easier:...

/bin/echo manual, or how can you help Japan

Yea, sort of weird post again, nevertheless, I'll publish this.
I'm worried much about Japan.

I wish everyone will be safe there. I wish this sort of <insert_your_definition> will never ever happen to their place again, and I wish they restore quickly, to even greater state in which Japan ever was before!
I now always think about a place with a blue-blue sky and shining sun in the morning, green leaves on the trees and happy people living there and enjoying their...

OMFG What a NOOB am I!!!
Today I've occasionally discovered what does 'lm' flag from /proc/cpuinfo mean... I've been using my AMD Sempron 3000+ cpu for already 4 years and had no clue it can handle 64-bit! ahahahah omfg I'm such a noob...
Actually, I was looking for a way to test powersaving features of CPU, I'm buying a new laptop for my mom, and the laptop has no pre-installed OS on it, so I needed a way to test powersaving features. Gentoo livecd fits that needs well. And while...

My next impression by Linux

Few days ago I've been into some C coding and again got impressed by how greatly linux is organised! Dependencies are written the clear way. The "./configure" script is a standard. The "Makefile" is a standard. and so on... they aren't strictly linux-related but I mostly work in Linux environment... I actually refer to UNIX standards I guess. It is so simple to create and redistribute own application using standard utils, making it easily-installable! I love this!
