    long time since I did an actual fact post, here I go

    1 - about 89% of the Linux Kernel is written by other devs and not Linus Torvalds himself

    2 - even Microsoft contributes to Linux Kernel development

    3 - all supercomputers use Linux

    4 - about 96% of servers use Linux

    5 - There are more than 10 Linux based Mobile Operating Systems

    6 - The mascot Tux [penguin] was suggested by Linus Torvalds after a penguin bit him in the zoo

    7 - Steve Jobs once offered in 2000 a job to Linus Torvalds at Apple, Linus rejected

    8 - Google has contributed about 1.1% of the code in the current Linux kernel

    9 - In early 1991, unhappy with the MS-DOS and MINIX, Torvalds wanted to buy a UNIX system. Luckily for us, he didn’t have enough money. So he decided to make his own clone of UNIX, from scratch.

    10 - Linus also created Git when BitKeeper shutdown its free service

    11 - Linus Torvalds has a strong dislike for C++ programming language, he has been vocal about it. He jokes that Linux Kernel compiles faster than a C++ program.

    12 - first Linux Kernel, version 0.01, had just 10,239 lines of code

    13 - Linux is also a genuine washing powder brand in Switzerland

    14 - Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer once called Linux cancer. In 2016, Microsoft created its own Linux distribution.

    15 - America’s NSA had approached Linus Torvalds in order to create backdoors in Linux Kernel. Linus said no this ‘request’.

    😮 , I mean I knew developers contributes patches to Linux , but don't knew the percentage...

    3 - all supercomputers use Linux

    Quantum computers too?

    9 - In early 1991, unhappy with the MS-DOS and MINIX, Torvalds wanted to buy a UNIX system. Luckily for us, he didn’t have enough money. So he decided to make his own clone of UNIX, from scratch.

    That's a good news 👌😂

    13 - Linux is also a genuine washing powder brand in Switzerland
