Default Helpppp Meee

I need some information on Linus Torvalds. Can some one help me. Links would be useful, as this is for a school project and we need a works cited page.

http://www.google.com/search?q=linus+torvalds ???

OK, jfgi based sarcasm aside.

Linus Torvalds was a student who as part of an assignment to code a mimix style core wrote a core that he called linux (naming it after himself).

he moved to america at some point to work for a big company.

there is lots of information here.


because it's a school project I suggest that you don't rip off wikipedia, rather that you look at the references at the bottom and go to those pages to get the information first hand and write your own article
