The LWN 1999 Linux Timeline

What a year. We went into 1999 expecting Linux to do incredible things, and were still amazed. Linux is truly on a roll.

In the same spirit as our popular 1998 Linux Timeline, here is our attempt to summarize what has happened in the Linux world over the last year. This is version 1.0 of the LWN 1999 Linux Timeline. Work on the timeline is essentially finised now; nonetheless, if there is an important item missing please drop us a note at lwn@lwn.net to let us know what we missed.

The 1999 timeline

This year we have split the timeline up into individual months, for quick loading and ease of access.
