Linus Torvalds: Software Rebel (Techies)
Synopses & Reviews
According to the Techie crowd, Linus Torvalds is the most famous computer programmer in the world. He was born in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, in 1969. He might not be a household name, but he's often called the anti-Bill Gates. He hasn't made any money off his software, though he's practically created a revolution. Torvalds wrote an operating system called Linux, a widely admired platform that competes with Windows. The amazing part — he gives it away for free. He's changing the way software is written, updated, and distributed. Torvalds has created a thriving community by inviting every Linux user and programmer to help him write the code and eradicate the bugs. Linus Torvalds has changed the future of computing.
