Thumbs up Linus Torvalds up for Millennium Technology Prize


From the BBC :
Quote:
Linux creator Linus Torvalds will find out later if he has won the Millennium Technology Prize and an accompanying cheque for about 1m euros ($1.3m; 800,000) from the Technology Academy of Finland.
Quote:
He has been nominated for the award in recognition of his creation of the original Linux operating system and his continued work deciding what modifications should be made to its kernel - the code that lets software and hardware work together.

Today variants of the system power much of the world's computer servers, set-top boxes, smartphones, tablets, network routers, PCs and supercomputers.

Ahead of the announcement Mr Torvalds gave a rare interview to the BBC.
Full interview here.
