CNN interview Linus Torvalds

Best part of interview?

KLS: Now you are something of a rock star in tech circles…
LT: I don’t notice that in normal life. I don’t actually go to that many conferences. I do that a couple of times a year. Normally I am not recognized, people don’t throw their panties at me. I’m a perfectly normal person sitting in my den just doing my job.

We’re sure Linus, that there will be geeky girls out there willing to throw their panties at you. Whether or not you want that to happen would be another story altogether.
