1) Once world domination is achieved, what will your official title be?
Torvalds: I've been called many things, and I think on the whole it will be either "Emperor Penguin" or "Pinhead". We will see.

2) Does Linux run on Red Hat?
Torvalds: That's just too strange a question.

3) Did you decide to call the next release 2.6 because point-oh releases have more bugs?
Torvalds: No, it's because there's an ancient Sumerian prophecy based on numerology that seems to imply that the moon would explode if we called it 3.0.

We're not really sure whether we decoded the clay tablets correctly, but on the whole we felt it was better to be safe than sorry.

4) If kernel hackers are like sous chefs, are you the Executive Sous Chef?
Torvalds: I think I'm the bartender. At least it feels like that sometimes, with a lot of people coming to tell me their sorrows.

5) People say Linux is ugly. How does that make you feel?
Torvalds: They'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes. Let's see just how ugly they think it is when they have a few bulletholes in them.

6) If Linux is so great, how come it has a higher TCO than Windows?
Torvalds: By the phrasing of that question, I can only assume that by TCO you mean the "Totally Cool Operation" value as opposed to it's more common technical meaning. And quite frankly, nobody knows why, but clearly it is so. Using Linux just makes you Totally Cool (admittedly mostly in a geeky kind of way, but hey, if it's cheerleaders you want, you would be in a rock band, right?)

7) Are you smarter than Bill Gates?
Torvalds: Bill who?

8) I read that your wife is proficient in karate. Is that why you help with the kids?
Torvalds: Yes.

9) I've heard that Linux causes cancer. How many hours a week can it safely be used?
Torvalds: That's a filthy lie. Besides, it was only in rats and has not been reproduced in humans.

10) If you played the Linux version of UT2003, what name would you use?
Torvalds: I think I'd be "lame duck."

(More fun things to be found at linux.org)

I want to meet Torvalds. I got to the world linux expo, however I just go to the exhibit for a day and walk around checking out the cool shit. So much fun. If I payed like $400 for the whole works I can hear him talk, but eh don't have that money to hear him lol.

4) "If kernel hackers are like sous chefs, are you the Executive Sous Chef?
Torvalds: I think I'm the bartender. At least it feels like that sometimes, with a lot of people coming to tell me their sorrows."

That was a good one.
