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.

You got a +1 from me.

I can't count the times I'm looking for something esoteric, hit mailing lists archives of projects (including the kernel, GTK, mplayer, etc.), and out of nowhere, as someone mentioned the word Linux, or their distro's name, Stallman swoops in (like he had an automated search set up for this stuff), and does his several-sentence spiel about GNU being first, and the basis of the system, and so it should be referred to as GNU/Linux.

Ugh!
