Linus Torvalds named Hero of the last 60 years by the Time magazine

My ISOC Trustee colleague Patrick blogged about it.

It’s true – check the Time web site. Linus is among Nelson Mandela, Andrei Sakharov, King Juan Carlos, Lech Walesa and others.

I believe that the Open Source software made not only a number of industries possible. It made Internet affordable and accessible. If we were using all expensive software today, many of us would not be on the Internet. Linus brought choice to all computerized mankind. I thank him for that.
