Is there a book on the life or work of Linux Torvalds? I'd be very interested to read into it, and how Linux was created.

I haven't read it, but I've thought about getting it for a while now.

Hm, that looks interesting, thanks for the link. If anyone else knows of any books I'd be interested to hear, I want to read up on him as much as I can. Linux and the open source movement is a very interesting topic in my opinion, and a movemen that I can't wait to be a part of :)

Hey guys, I actually just bought this book and started reading it Sunday. Im half way done and I can say it is a very interesting read. It may not be the most well written book but defiantly worth it.
