Linux began in August 1991, as Linus Torvalds announced his project on Usenet

See here, for a more in depth history of Linux from LinuxUser

Also see a youtube video doing the rounds

Also announced by Linus recently is his new Kernel - details of changes in the next version, which is due out in about six or seven weeks and has been dubbed 'Sneaky Weasel', but announced as Linux 3.0, were revealed

Quote:
Importantly, Torvalds noted that "absolutely nothing" will change – besides driver tweaks, VFS cleanups, VM fixes and "ARM consolidation"
