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.

Honestly, though I think people like stallman are necessary, there's a very big difference between him and people who, imo, really deserve a peace prize. Pushin for freedom and risking controversy, is just not the same as facing real, tangible torture and death for these claims.

This just demands eons of courage more, sorry, and this is what the NPP should be about.
