Linux Linus Torvalds - a classic example of the love-it-or-hate-it type of person. Brilliant programmer, of course, and the father of one of the most extraordinary software projects in the world, but sometimes, he can be utterly arrogant any annoying, yet the other moment completely sensible and utterly spot-on in his statements. CBR listed the ten best Linus Torvalds quotes.

Torvalds' Credit

Sure, he did a great job on the kernel, but I think he gets a little too much credit. I'm not one of these "It's GNU/Linux!" people, but I think the GNU tools are probably more important to users of Linux than the kernel is. I don't want to spark a naming debate, but I just think Linus Torvalds doesn't deserve all the credit he gets.
