It was originally authored in 1991 by Linus Torvalds for his i386-based PC, and it was soon adopted as the kernel for the GNU operating system, which was written to be a free (libre) replacement for Unix.Linux is provided under the GNU General Public License version 2 only, but it contains files under other compatible licenses.
