    Linus Torvalds is the founder and primary developer of the Linux kernel. He's been working on the Linux kernel since September 1991, which is over 25 years, a quarter of a century with Linus Torvalds at the helm. I am reminded that 5 years ago, Apple founder and CEO, Steve Jobs passes away and when I think of that I notice how much Apple has changed since he passed on. Although Apple is not alone as it has been 8 years, since 2008, when Bill Gates retired from his executive duties at Microsoft. It really does make me wonders what will Linux be like once we lose Linus Torvalds?

    hmm no take me wrong but I think that you don't need think so; instead think as Linux is one open source O.S. then all colaborators desire ever make more development, stable distros and constant evolution Linus Torvalds is only icon still Linux O.S. definitely is for me the future in operational systems and FreeBSD too :g:

    I learned C from Kerningham and Ritchie's "The C programming Language".

    I didn't even know. :(

    :rip: Dennis Ritchie.

    Linux includes closed-source programs. Free software foundation uploads Linux-libre , Linux-libre is a fully free alternative to Linux.

    I never liked Linus Torvalds. :poop: 's to give -> 0.

    .. and it doesn't matter if open or closed source, don't tell chefy you compile each time all included software + kernel + os yourself. No one does this. Even Torvalds use bot compiled kernel to upgrade. So at the end you never now anyway, especially because it's impossible to audit each new commit in an stable environment.

    Like/dislike is neither here nor there, this is what girlies and boys do...

    Do you agree with the principle of giving away a kernel and co-creating an OS OS?
