Alecs' Blog Did you ever go clear..

Just for Fun

Have read some chapters of the Chinese version before. Occasionally found the original English version in a local bookstore. Spent about 2 hours there reading it.

What interests me most are the days before, of, and rite after Linus creating his start-as-a-hobby-but-end-up-being-a-powerful operating system. Totally a geek, being very nerdy. His first PC, his college life, the army service, the days & nights toying with Minix, first step of writing Linux, the debate with Andrew. Other parts of how he met with Steve Jobs, Bill Joy are all very interesting.

Nice reading. And i like that funny writing way. =) The young Linus' enthusiasm just gives me some kind of encouragement (and passion?) for coding/programming/hacking.

Keep going! :)
