Linux Linus Torvalds is remarkable, not only for being the technical genius who wrote Linux, but for then being able to inspire and lead an enormous team of people to devote their free time to work on the operating system and bring it to maturity. We sent Richard Morris off to interview Linus, and find out more.

I realize that Linus made minux work on pc hardware, but that is hardly creating an OS. The Linux OS is created by many developers around the world. What would it be like with Xorg, KDE, Gnome, Firefox, etc. It wouldn't be useful at all. Linus has his place with the kernel but I think gets too much credit for creating the "Linux OS"
