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.

And it also seems that RMS is actually correct, because he didn't suddenly drop dead after eating that candy that he found from the floor.


Candy? Not unless he has a habit of hiding candy between his toes.

Of course, if RMS cared too much about what other people think of him, he probably would have never declared in public that sharing software is a recommendable act.


And even worse, he might bathe or shave once in a while!

Still, some of us find RMS's ideas about Free Software unique and ingenious -- the kind of ideas that make their originator well worth the Nobel Prize.


What unique ideas? All he did was take something that was a common, voluntary practice and he wrote a license to make it a requirement.
