Linux is newer. Written in 1991

GNOME 3.6.2
openSUSE Release 12.3 (Dartmouth) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.7.10-1.16-desktop

As Linux is nothing but a rewritten Unix, what is realy “new” there? As said in the video, it is not realy a new invention, it is a re-design of what was invented in the sixties.

With my basic Unix knowledge, build up in the seventies/eighties and kept up-to-date in the nineties, I feel perfectly at home in todays LInux.
