Just like me. Love my DELL SK-8115. Keyboard noise when coding is music to my ears.

At the beginning I read "my first line of coke" and I was like shieet man!

How humble of him. Like he’s unaware how much his code rocks earth every minute.

What a slow typer.

I got into basic as well with just notepad and making "fake" viruses for my brother. I've moved into python and I also know C, Java, and I'm starting with linux.

Same project for 25 years? When's he going to finish it?

He's originally from the Swedish speaking area of Finland, I expected him to have a lot more of an accent than he does.

I used Linux from Slackware 10 and never saw a picture of Linus until now.

there's something about coding which only true programmer can feel and understand.....the feeling when u code...that happiness...that passion...that moment when u feel like u r living that code u r see it happening visual though it's only text... it's just a divine feeling for a programmer...it makes forget any other thing happening outside in the world...u become part of it...and the end...a program is discreet and complex piece of text which is the proof of the love a true programmer..!!!

He has a few social cues indicative of high-functioning autism.
Kai Borniger (2 months ago)
This is a nice feelgood video. I thought my first code line was something like moveq.l and when Linus mentioned VIC20 I thought his might've been MOV, but then I remembered it was BASIC too. That's why code commenting is important. People forget to forgive, while computers do neither! When can people be trusted? Depends on give and take and time and observation.

25 years?
Jimbo Bimbo (2 months ago)
Not only initiated he Linux, but also the versioning system GIT, that - again - pretty much the whole world is using by now. The man's legacy to the software industry is astounding.

Is Linux way to speak english more American or englisch -style or something other? Iam not a native englisch speaker so I would like to know which kind of accent he speaks because his langauge is so easy to understandt for not natives.(Even my German-Grandma can follow his words...)

"The computer will do exactly what you tell it to" - apart from when it's speculatively executing code you didn't ask it to. Right, Intel?
leetlikelime (4 months ago)
important to note is that someone at intel wrote the microcode, too. Thats why they got lambasted in the LKML by Linus.

linus is a soy-boy cuck who yells at volunteers who maintain linux kernel. fuck people like him.

Well Linus actually needs mechanic keyboard because when he goes to computer he probably writes a lot of code... I think.

Linus - the best, of the best, of the best. He has changed the world (for the better). Linux has had as much, if not more, of an impact on the world as the internal combustion engine.

Telling Linus how to work: priceless.
Am I the only one who can read only his code as any other language, but when i try to read someone else's code its like reading chinese???

No the reason Linus is still working on the project is because Microsoft, Apple etc keeping stealing all the best talent for their own economic gain.

Vignesh Sivakumar (9 months ago)
That's because he is not Bill Gates and Relelaed WIndows which is commercial, he released Linux which is Open Source, and that's what you get for releasing something for free.
Tux (9 months ago)
What Linux program is he using to write in basic? That would be a really cool mess-around toy for me.
Tux It looks like a text editor.
