“They’re in the kernel!” Add /dev/gibson to Your Linux Machine

If you’re looking for something fun, check out the /dev/gibson kernel module which creates a device on your Linux machine that prints out the script to the classic 1995 film Hackers.  Although it’s funny to look back at early internet & cyberpunk films of the 90’s, this kernel module actually has some practical use.  If you’re learning about how to write a kernel module something as simple as /dev/gibson can be a great resource to see how a basic device and module are created.  Hack the planet!
