"Linus Torvalds has probably done more for the world than many know, and his influence stretches far and wide throughout all corners of the globe with a variety of amazing implementations of his original vision that started almost two decades ago.

"Whether you know it or not, at some stage in your day-to-day life you probably come into contact with Torvalds' work. Without him, many wouldn't be where they are today, Ubuntu wouldn't exist, and Free Software wouldn't be such a prevalent mainstream ideology used by millions of people.

"Torvalds has paved the way for Linux to become a truly successful mass-market product that's ubiquitous in everything from embedded ARM devices like in-car entertainment systems to the likes of the TiVo set-top box that graces living rooms the world over and possibly even the smartphone that resides in your pocket."
