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 underestimate the importance of an OS in the world today, its important for a free society not to rely on a proprietary software controlled by a special interest group. (Or two , both some might call IT mafiosi). Free software means freedom from economic slavery, and that in combination with widespread knowledge-transmisson, immaterially, and ecofriendly over the networks = peace. Most war is over resources.
