We are celebrating
29 years of Linux

29 Years ago, Linus Torvalds started developing a new Operating System as a hobby project.

Today, Linux has transformed our world, powering everything from supercomputers and space programs to cars, phones and the smart home.

IGEL has always believed in Linux.

In 1994 IGEL released “Etherminal 3X” based on Linux. Etherminal 3X provided access to X Terminal sessions.

Today IGEL OS is still powered by Linux. IGEL OS provides secure remote access to cloud workspaces for over 17K customers and has over 90+ technology integrations.

29 years ago Linus believed he could create an open-source OS.

Thousands of Linux community members believed in helping him create Linux
