in thankfulness for his creation. That identical period some comrade went public
Linus Torvalds
and Torvalds' tranche eigenvalue temporarily exports up to about US million.
His in-person being is a sphenisciform seabird appellation Tux
Linus Torvalds
, which has old person wide adoptive by the Linux gathering as the being of the Linux kernel.
Although Torvalds trust "open source
Linus Torvalds
is the alone claim way to do software", he as well has aforesaid that he enjoy the "best lawn tool for the job", still if that incorporate proprietary software
Linus Torvalds

As of 2006, approximately two vacancy rate of the Linux kernel was graphical by Torvalds himself. Because thousands have throw in to the Linux kernel, this percentage is one of the for the most part contributions to it. However, he declared in 2012 that his own personal contribution is for the most part merging building building code graphical by others, with olive-sized programming. Torvalds retains the highest authority to orientate which new building building code is incorporated into the standard Linux kernel.
