Linus Torvalds’ Benevolent Dictatorship
The creator of Linux says "I can’t be nasty" when leading the open-source movement since it’s all built on trust and teamwork.
Linus Torvalds created the first iteration of the Linux operating system 13 years ago. Since then, he has been the technical shepherd coordinating the volunteer work of more than 1,000 people who actively contribute code and ideas to the Linux kernel — the core program. He’s also the symbolic leader of a movement made up hundreds of companies that are involved in Linux development, in addition to the thousands of volunteers. That has helped Linux become the No. 2 operating system worldwide for server computers.
