I liked this soft article, though I wouldn't like to see many of the same kind.
A little notice:
"Jim described Linus and Andrew as a couple of the most influential people in technology. They are, he said, at the same level as people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Larry Ellison."
Is that an insult? :)
"Those people are some of the richest in the world."
Well, give them the noble prize in economics, but that doesn't say much about their merits in IT.
