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.

.. but he did it though the FOSS software development model.

So if they want to give the FOSS idea the prize and Linus as a worthy representative then OK.

If just Linus because he happened to code a popular kernel, then NO.
