Long time computer programmer with interests that wander into historical re-enactments and living history to bagpipes and cooking. I'm also a short story author.

comment Oldest binary working on Linux?
@nealmcb -- There was a 0-byte program called go.com for both CP/M and DOS that would rerun the last COM file loaded. So, it was even sold. So, in fact, it predates Linux. It just changed what it did when it jumped platform. Talk about backwards compatibility! We have a CP/M, DOS and *nix program all running at once.

comment cp file device:directory on Minix
The boot sector a whole different beast. I'll be honest, I've not used Minix in over 25 years and it was a way different beast back then... but it isn't unheard of for *nix variants to keep the boot code on a different partition.
