Linux Now this is one to ponder. This year, the Nobel Peace Prize went to Barack Obama, president of the United States. The prize has been given to both politicians and non-politicians alike, and Keith Lofstrom thinks its time to hand over the Peace Prize to a non-politician once more: Linus Torvalds.

easy to knock Obama

You know, its easy for all of you to knock Obama, except that none of you are black men that have been elected President of the United States. So show a *little* respect. As for Linus, well, its a bit early. While he hasn't done much to deserve it yet, who knows where Linux will go.

As for intent and identity go, give Linus a break. Edison did science to get rich. Not save the world. Franklin was a man slut banging anything he could get. People are rarely as saintly as we might expect for someone who changed the world.
