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.

There are other Nobel prizes in specific fields (science, medicine, etc) that would be more appropriate. Not the Peace prize.

They SHOULD make a category in the Swedish prizes for significant achievements in Information Technology..

If not I still think the opensource movement and Stallman could deserve a Peace Prize as much as Gore or a few others ..
