  1. Interesting to discover
    <http://www.h-online.com/open/features/Why-GNU-Linux-is-Unmatched-and-Unmatchable-1019411.html>
    that Alpha was only the second platform that Linux was implemented on. So
    Linux went 64-bit at the same time it went portable. And according to this
    timeline <http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/6000>, that happened in 1994,
    when Linux was just 3 years old.
