Not to take anything away from Linus, but Linux is at the point it's at
right now because of the efforts of a large number of people. I wouldn't
even want to begin mentioning names at the risk I might leave one out, but
what would Linux be without the kernel hackers, driver developers, and
document writers scattered throughout the world, plus the distribution
maintainers and GNU. If you're going to be sending dollar bills to Linus
(what's the exchange rate??), you might want to look through the CREDITS
file and get some change ready.
