Re: Linus Torvalds
 
I know I said I wasn't going to participate in the General forum no longer but felt I'd answer such easy questions:

where is he now?

Not sure, I don't babysit for a living. But he does live in California. Why?

what is he currently working on?

The kernel of course.

anyone met him before?

Yup and we made him hold up a 6 month old apple pie from McDonalds to take pictures with Apple Pie Man.

any latest news about him?

Tried google.com lately?

what do you think about him?

Nice guy and makes a really great OS kernel.. ;)

Just an answer for the last question:

The man's humble, way too damn humble for what he's created. It's so refreshing, when you compare him to his "peers", like BG, Ellison, and the like.
