I have huge respect for Stallman, despite his sometimes antagonizing
comments. It's thanks to Linus' little pet project that I re-found my
love of computers when I was ready to leave IT eight years ago. I own
him my job.
However, neither of them deserve the peace prize. Maybe another
category, like one of the science ones.
