I discovered today that one of William Roach's sons is called Linus. :D

Just thought I'd share. :)
Linux: Open your mind, not your wallet.

Hmm, but as he was born in 1964, I don't think William/Ken waited until Linux was released to choose his name.

Particularly when Linus is actually 2x more likely to be a girl and is actually fairly common :wink:

Well they also think that Linux is a very popular girls name, and their "Listing of some deceased famous people named Linux" contains someone called "Linux Promotion" :shock:
I have been touched by his noodly appendage.

Did you follow the link? The blog was talking about the OSDL - Open Source Development Lab which became The Linux Foundation in 2007 :lol: The second Pope was Linus, as was the musical son of the god Apollo :wink:

Was he the one that used to drift around all the gay bars in Rome? They used to know him as Cruise Linus.

Don't forget Linus from the Peanuts cartoon strip.
The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!
