A tour of the first-ever Linux Hall of Fame

Whiskey bottles, Caldera, a kid's fan letter populates the Linux Hall of Fame

As part of the 20th anniversary of Linux, the Linux Foundation put together its first ever Linux Hall of Fame exhibit. They showcased it at LinuxCon, held in Vancouver last week. The exhibit features signed items from the who’s-who of the Linux world like Linus Torvalds. The Linux Foundation’s Jennifer Cloer walked me through some of her favorite items. These include a notably empty whiskey bottle donated by Torvalds, a signed box from the Caldera team (Caldera would later become SCO and do battle against Linux ... it didn't end well for SCO) and a super cute fan letter from a very young Linux user.
