"In money-mad Silicon Valley, Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux, has become a folk hero by giving people a free ride."

"LINUS TORVALDS doesn't look much like a superstar--not just now, with wet tan hair matted on his pale face, steamed-up glasses, a steady flow of sweat dripping down the length of his incipient paunch, and that blissed-out smile.
