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'm sorry, but just because he is pragmatic doesn't mean he should get a nobel peace prize.

if anything bill gates would get one before linus. bill gates has donated billions of dollars to humanitarian aid, education, cancer and aids research and more. Through the bill and melinda gates foundation.

bill gates hasn't won the award. and i would vote for him way way way before linus.
