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.

I wonder how being a black man who reached the President office says anything about the guy. If anything, it says about the society in U.S.A. in general, that it can be, possibly, becoming less driven by prejudice and the importance of the images of those they elect.

Who should care if the guy is black, gay, adulterous or whatever? All that matter is that he should (And I'm not saying Obama is, I don't have much of a saying in it... I don't follow US politics that closely.) be competent for the job and treat his authority and power with ethics and integrity for the sake of the population.

All the rest is a society's stupid hypocrisy.
