Just read a great article on wired about Linus Torvalds, the man who started the Linux kernel.
Great stuff. I love journalism that goes deep and gets information from the source, instead of just reposting web rumors.
But, am I the only one who feels like the story is a little bit of a tragedy? The only big payout he gets from Linux taking over the world is sales of Red Hat stock for 1 million dollars (or thereabouts)? It's like Austin Powers in this day and age. Compare that to Jobs, Gates, Ellison. If he had a penny for every Linux distribution... And he's still working for salary. Now, I'm sure he's comfortable, but he probably doesn't own electric car companies or rocket businesses. And why do I care anyway? Just doesn't seem right somehow. But thanks anyway, Linus!
