Smile Linus Torvalds with his Daughters. (rare pics)

Linux was developed by Linus Benedict Torvalds. He is considered as Father of Linux Kernel. He was born on December 28, 1969 in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. The strange coincidence about this birth-date was that UNIX was developed during the same year i.e. 1969. He grew up in , the capital of . Linus was a Computer Science Student in University of Helsinki,. At that time he was using UNIX like operating system called MINIX. Minix had many limitations so he thought of developing a new operating system free from limitations of MS-DOS

Linus is married to Tove Torvalds (née Monni). She is a six-time Finnish national Karate champion, whom he first met in the autumn of 1993. Linus was running introductory computer laboratory exercises for students and instructed the course attendants to send him an e-mail as a test, to which Tove responded with an e-mail asking for a date. They have three daughters, Patricia Miranda (born December 5, 1996), Daniela Yolanda (born April 16, 1998) and Celeste Amanda (born November 20, 2000), and a cat named Randi.

After putting heaps and stacks of exertion, I have managed to get rarest of rare pics of Linus Torvald's Daughters. Although these pics are quite old but still worthy enough to have glimpse of.

Hope you all like it. Suggestions, Thoughts, Bashings, Appreciation bla bla bla all can knock my door. Feel free to speak your heart out.

Sorry, rare pictures??? how about private pictures?? why would you, anyone, want to trade in pictures of a software developer and his children? That's just creepy to me. links removed. And you appear to have copied that text verbatim from wikipedia. super.

Whilst General is certainly a good place for general discussion about linux culture and such, I can't see a reason to be posting this, other than to generate traffic to your blog. As such that would be classed as advertising, which contravenes the rules of this site. If you believe this has been judged unfairly then please contact myself of Jeremy, the site admin to take it further. in the meantime, i'm closign this thread. thanks.
