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.

Should we care?

Is the Nobel Peace Prize even relevant anymore? It's been given to Yassir Arafat (a terrorist) and Barak Obama (who's only accomplishment so far has been not being George Bush), among others. Does it have enough credibility left that we should care who gets it?
