    I think that a large proportion of successful people are to some extent "selfish" in that they often put their own goals ahead of other aspects of their lives...

    ...that's why I am not rich and famous (yet)... or at least that's the excuse I have been using for years!

    I personally think its pretty stingy that Linus has had to share the prize!

    I think he should have won it outright for his contribution to world technology.
