Afronaut is skiing to the cutting edge of IT
MARK Shuttleworth, South Africa’s billionaire Afronaut, is planning to live to 100 — and to have spent all his money by then. He does not see the need to increase his billions “trying to climb some chart” and he is prepared “to spend chunks of it having fun” — Shuttleworth is currently on a two-month stay in Verbier, Switzerland. When not having fun he spends the bulk of his time working on Ubuntu, a free Linux-based operating system.
