A friend sent me it, thought it was funny so i decided to post it.


1. Linus Torvalds can program without a keyboard

3. The commonest definition of the word programmer is Linus Torvalds

4. Linus Torvalds didin't learn from the University of Helsinki the University of Helsinki learned from Linus Torvalds.

5. Linus Torvalds finished the Linux Kernel the day before he started on it.

Looks like a variant on Bruce Schneier facts (http://geekz.co.uk/schneierfacts/), that may be a play on Chuck Norrris facts. Bruce is a top encryption/security expert.

Still fun though.

Here's mine:

Linus Torvalds doesn't use a monitor. He can read the video signals from a VGA cable with his finger.

well according to linus book (http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0066620732/ref=sib_dp_pt/105-4540067-1082027#reader-link) his first program print HELLO endless in the screen and the second

point 8. needs to be changed: artificial goes bold, intelligence goes size 6.

aw. those were my first ones, too. Except the Sara one.

Also, I remember knowing enough BASIC to make the computer spit out a series of powers of two. I left it running overnight, and my father came down and saw the computer spitting out powers of two. He was so furious he forbad me from ever doing it again.

ehem. Hauling this back on-topic: Linust Torvalds doesn't need STDERR.

SARA IS THE BEST endless. Using BASIC.

my first programming was in logo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logo_(programming_language)) but my first BASIC program printed a word endlessle on screen too.
not sure the syntax is correct but it should be something like this:

10 PRINT "HELLO"
20 GOTO 10


my second BASIC program was an evolved of the first: it cleared the screen before printing.


5 CLS
10 PRINT "HELLO"

I still consider myself to be new to Ubuntu Linux, and I am half guessing here:

Linus Torvalds is using the terminal on his computer and he runs that command, which searches the computer for packages with the letters "sudo" in the name, and he finds nothing because he doesn't use "sudo", as he is in superuser mode all the time.

How did I do, did I understand it correctly? :D

Linus Torvalds is taking over the world. Microsoft is just a deversion so that no one would suspect a mild mannered Finnish programmer.

Linus Torvalds can run kill -9 and kill Chuck Norris.

Linus Torvalds already has Linux 3.0. He is just keeping it to himself to build suspense.

Linus Torvalds didn't design Linux to run on the 386. Intel designed the 386 to run Linux.
