Torvalds: A boy and his computer


Author: JT Smith reviews the new Linus Torvalds autobiography, “Just for Fun: The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary.” From the review, “If I wanted more from “Just for Fun,” perhaps it’s because my
standards are too high, after four years of covering free software
and pondering the significance of Linus Torvalds in a world
packed with greedy corporations and fierce wars over intellectual
property. Or maybe there’s a less respectable explanation. It could
be that I’m just jealous of coauthor Diamond. He got to spend a
year drinking beer and sitting in hot tubs with Linus.”
