Re: what's the killer app for GNU/Linux systems?
The genius is that Linus got people involved and the allowed it to run without
taking it back or stifling it in any way. As for timing, that's another
genius in itself. So maybe Linus was two geniuses?
Item one isn't genius, it's good people management skills.
Item two: You're saying he picked when he was born and went to college
and knew that if he timed that right, OS development would be at the
proper point for him to create a little kernel and have it take off
