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.

As a casual reader looking for interesting computer news, I find this a waste of time.

This is an OS we are talking about, in the scheme of things in this world, an OS is a millisecond in the life of the planet.

On the other hand, if we were to be objective and think seriously about this, Bill Gates because of his money has done and has had a greater impact in the world than Linus. The other one, RMS, really, it's a buffoon!

By the way, using the Nobel committee guidelines for giving Obama the Peace Prize(in short they said that he had not done anything worthy yet, but due to his policies and polularity, he might.), nominate me for the chemistry Nobel price because I have the chance of making a great chemistry discovery some time in the future!
