Even more interesting if you stop to consider that Linus, in his book
"Just for Fun", mentions that there are only (I think it was) 25
Torvalds in the entire world, and they're all his family... his
grandpa (or something) invented the name from their old one.

To be honest, I was a little offended seeing Axl when I knew this
piece of information; Axl was no hacker, merely a cracker
