UnixReview.com: Just for Fun Book Review and Excerpt

UnixReview reviews the Linus Torvalds autobiography, Just for Fun, and provides an excerpt as well. Nothing like a chapter that starts off with:

"I was an ugly child.

What can I say? I hope some day Hollywood makes a film about Linux, and they'll be sure to cast somebody who looks like Tom Cruise in the lead role - but in the non-Hollywood version, things don?t work out that way.

Don't get me wrong. It's not as if I looked like the hunchback of Notre Dame. Envision instead large front teeth, so that anybody seeing a picture of me in my younger years gets a slightly beaverish impression. Imagine also a complete lack of taste in clothes, coupled with the traditional oversized Torvalds nose, and the picture starts to complete in your mind."
