Free Software For Education

A Word From The Creator Of Our Favorite Computer Operating System

Q: So, how do you feel about potentially billions of dollars of wealth being created from your creation that you're not necessarily directly cashing out?

A: So? If I hadn't made Linux available, I mean, I wouldn't have gotten a name, (or) money that way either. So I mean, it's a win-win situation. Just the fact that there are a lot of commercial companies, means that there are a lot of Linux people who used to work on Linux (kind of) along the side, and now they get paid for doing what they wanted to do. That helps me in the sense that I wanted them to work on Linux anyway.

- Linus Torvalds
