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.

I was decades from being born when the Nobel Peace Prize lost due credibility (1947 or 1948, IIRC). Since the prize has a history of awarding people for supporting human rights, international cooperation on things, wider education, beneficial social institutions, etc., while he may not be a world leader or anything, Linus Torvalds would fit in the scope of the prize.
