I tried weaker and stronger gotos but "20 GOTO 10" was the best. "20 GOTO 20" didnt work. And other values crashed.

Interesting to see he works from such a disorganized room with his desk essentially a complete mess.

Random useless fact: Linus Torvalds was 6 years old when Steve Jobs founded Apple.

Este loco como sigue tomando meritos ajenos, no hizo nada en mas de 20 años y se cree un dios del codigo, un puto kernel logro hacer solamente y es cerrado, o acaso pueden entrar y ver su codigo?? Y habla del codigo libre, richard es el capo el que hizo todo realidad el que lucho por el codigo libre, la GNU es lo que todos usamos y modificamos, GNU es la estructura libre a la todo tenemos acceso, es el sistema en si, y este payaso ni lo nombra a richard. Acaso cree que trabaja solo en su casa por que el quiere y le gusta?? Es por que richard y el resto ya saben que el solo les robo el merito a todos y que no aporata nada a la causa del software libre, el loco trabaja solo y no cumple las normativas de la GPL.

Yes Linus is great but lets not forget the people that gave us Unix and C and the GNU project and people involved with that.

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

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 (5 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.

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.
