Once upon a time Linus Torvalds was a skinny unknown, just another nerdy Helsinki techie who had been fooling around with computers since childhood. Then he wrote a groundbreaking operating system and distributed it via the Internet -- for free. Today Torvalds is an international folk hero. And his creation LINUX is used by over 12 million people as well as by companies such as IBM.Now, in a narrative that zips along with the speed of e-mail, Torvalds gives a history of his renegade software while candidly revealing the quirky mind of a genius. The result is an engrossing portrayal of a man with a revolutionary vision, who challenges our values and may change our world.
A fascinating look inside the success of Linux creator Linus Torvalds reveals an "accidental" innovator who helped create the revolutionary open source software movement and traces his life from his offbeat Finnish childhood, through his discovery of the joy of computers, to his rise to world fame with Linux.
