    Well...

    After Linus saying that the real creators of Linux are "the Tooth Fairy and
    Santa Claus" ( http://www.linuxworld.com/story/44851.htm ), Andy Tanenbaum
    wrote Some Notes on the "Who wrote Linux" Kerfuffle
    ( http://www.cs.vu.nl/~ast/brown/ ) and today made a follow-up
    (http://www.cs.vu.nl/~ast/brown/followup/ ) telling what were the motivations
    of Ken Brown, President of the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution.

    Interesting readings...

    Anyway, I think this is kind of an off-topic theme for this Mailing List.
