Smile Linus Torvalds

Hey Frenz,
Dont feel angry or dont throw any eggs or tomatoes.. me too a Linux fan
I want to know something curious.
Is Linus Torvalds still contributing to the Open Source Linux Kernel?
Or did he just made a basement code of Linux in earlier days and left for others to develop Linux thru the OPenSource.?

Essentially, Linus Torvalds is the boss of the Linux Kernel. Changes made to kernel time and time again are updated and Linus does contribute changes to the kernel, though not as much as he did in the earlier days. The final call for the kernel is given by him. He currently works at OSDL
