Hi, there Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols your host today. I've been using and writing about Linux and open source for entirely too long. Suffice it to say that while I didn't use Linux 0.01, I was running Linux not long after that. So, with introductions out of the way, let's move on to the quiz shall we?

Give yourself an extra point if you knew the name behind the letters for him or the others: RMS-Richard M. Stallman, GregHK-Greg Kroah-Hartman, and yours truly.

The correct answer is... »Answer is D. Lenovo Microsoft used to sell Xenix, a Unix variant back in the early 80s. Dell also had its own System V Release 4 (SVR4) Unix back in the early 90s, and IBM, of course, has AIX. While Lenovo has sold PCs with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED), it never sold its own Unix or Linux.
The correct answer is... »Answer is D. Carla. Although now that I've said this, I'm sure someone will roll one out.
The correct answer is... »Answer is A. Slackware. Red Hat Linux came much later, CP/M-80 isn't related to Linux or Unix at all, and while Gentoo is also an important early distribution, Slackware predates it.
