  • Linus awarded with the Millennium Technology prize

    It said to be an equivalent to a Nobel prize. And this year it was Linus and the Japanese Dr. Yamanaka. Linus for obviously making the world a better place with software and Dr. Yamanaka for research on stem cells that don't need embryo stem cells. Read for yourself here:

    I wonder if these 73'000 man years mean the kernel itself or something more.

      This thread is bogus. The award winner will be announced in June. Linus is a candidate.

          This was also reported on Tom's Hardware http://www.tomshardware.com/news/lin...ize,15409.html

          I can't believe Phoronix hasn't reported on it.
