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."
