Linux "If you meet Linus Torvalds, he comes off as a mild-mannered, down-to-earth Finnish-American. He lives with his wife Tove, three kids, a cat, a dog, a snake, a goldfish, a bunny and a pet rat in a comfortable 6000 square foot home just north of Portland's tony Lake Oswego neighborhood. The house is yellow - his favorite color - and so's the Mercedes. But he's not really like any of his neighbors. He drives his Mercedes fast, slamming the car into gear and flooring it. There's no coaxing, no hesitation. Either the hammer is down, or the car is at rest. And he has an abnormal number of stuffed penguins on his mantle." Yup, sounds like the to-the-point Fin we all know and love.

Support for MATE or Cinnamon

One of the things I'd like to see is Linus making an "official" support to projects like Cinnamon and MATE. It's been a while since he called GNOME Shell an "unholy mess", and he's quite funny because he comes with these down to earth expressions. Sometimes you figure things out about something and there's him already with a totally down to earth opinion on that subject. I quite like his sense of humour and way of handling some of the issues in software and computing.
