I discovered today that one of William Roach's sons is called Linus. Very Happy

Just thought I'd share. Smile

Hmm, but as he was born in 1964, I don't think William/Ken waited until Linux was released to choose his name.

Well they also think that Linux is a very popular girls name, and their "Listing of some deceased famous people named Linux" contains someone called "Linux Promotion" Shocked

Did you follow the link? The blog was talking about the OSDL - Open Source Development Lab which became The Linux Foundation in 2007 Laughing The second Pope was Linus, as was the musical son of the god Apollo Wink

Was he the one that used to drift around all the gay bars in Rome? They used to know him as Cruise Linus.
