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.

Irena Sendler was robbed her Nobel Prize in 2007 when it was awarded to Al Gore. She passed away in 2008 and is no longer eligible for the award because they are not awarded posthumously. Yes, I'm still bitter about that one.
