00:12 well what's GNU plus Linux in 1984 I 00:16 began developing an operating system 00:21 which is a free software replacement for 00:24 Unix now UNIX in 1984 had hundreds of 00:30 components so developing a replacement 00:36 mean meant developing a free replacement 00:38 for every one of those components except 00:42 a few we could do without so in 1992 we 00:48 had almost the entire GNU system but 00:51 one essential important component was 00:54 missing that component is the kernel 00:57 which is the program that's the platform 00:59 on which the other programs run it 01:02 allocates the computer's resources to 01:04 other programs so in 1992 mr. 01:09 Torvalds 01:10 who had written a proprietary kernel 01:12 called Linux liberated it at that point 01:17 the combination of Linux and the 01:20 incomplete GNU system made a complete 01:23 free operating system achieving the goal 01:27 that I had announced in 1983 so the 01:32 result was a system that was basically 01:34 GNU but also contains Linux so it's 01:37 the GNU plus Linux or GNU slash 01:40 Linux system you'll find that most 01:42 people erroneously call the whole thing 01:45 Linux which means you're giving us no 01:47 credit for our work that's not nice 01:50 please please don't do that 01:51 even if other people do that please 01:54 treat us right
