Linus Torvalds is My Hero

Zachary DuPont is a 6th grader whose school organized a letter-writing project —students wrote a letter and mailed it to their heroes. As you would expect, the students wrote to celebrities. Zachary’s particular celebrity was Linus Torvalds, the man behind the Linux open source operating system. Mr. Torvalds received the letter and invited Zachary to be his guest at the 2014 LinuxCon and to meet him there in person. During their meeting, Mr. Torvalds, the father of Linux, signed Zachary’s copy of Linux Bible and also gave him a signed copy of his own book: Just for Fun: The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary.
