I don't believe Linus Torvalds is a Linux employee anymore. He was hired by Microsoft and is working on a next gen OS codenamed Midori. I think he was hired a little over a year ago, but I'm not positive on the timeframe.

The head of LINUXCON said that Linus is an employee of The Linux Foundation, and working at their offices in Portland, Seattle.

Nevermind. After doing some research to reread the story, I see it was an April fools joke story.

I can't believe I didn't catch that the first time.

I am glad you researched it, because I too thought he'd spent a short stint there.


>I am surprised at the small size of the event.

Well, it could be that they don't need to push Linux down our throats, no?
