Product description

In this witty and engrossing narrative, Linus Torvalds, the brilliant mastermind behind the latest technology revolution, chronicles his transformation from pale, skinny Helsinki college kid to international folk hero. What began as a childhood hobby soon became the astonishing phenomenon known as the LINUX operating system. A decade after its inception, the LINUX system is still constantly evolving and improving everyday, and Linus describes this in simple, layman's terms without lapsing into mind-boggling technical jargon.Part autobiography and part business philosophy, Just For Fun brims with biographical detail about the radical spirit and creativity of Linus Torvaids. Torvalds is the first to admit he never intentionally sought fame and fortune. Yet fame and fortune found him when he radically changed the world of technology for one selfish reason-He did it just for fun.Read by David Diamond
