Linus Torvalds enters race for California Governor

Linus Torvalds enters race for California Governor

It sounds like a great idea to me.

Do you know why it would be impossible for Jesus to be born in California?

You don't know?

They can't find three wise men or a virgin....

I hate to say this but if Linus did become a politician I'm afraid I may go back to Windows. There is no lower form of life than a politician.

Please Linus, stay away from that corrupting political money!

Linus was a total geek. He married the first woman to ask him out. How could he have any sexual escapades?

I think it's all a joke. Read the article closely.

i think that this is a joke. i have never read anything that lead me to believe that linus has any political views strong enough to make him run for office. Also it could be a joke due to the fact that there are two movie stars that are running for office and else where in the us we have an X pro wrestler that IS gov'na.
this in itself is funny

I've read past interviews with Linus. He's definetly NOT interested in running for any political office. Finland is very laid back politically and that's the way he is.
