Thumbs up Linux creator Linus Torvalds shares Millennium Technology Prize

Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux, has been named joint winner of the 2012 Millennium Technology Prize.

He shares the honour with Dr Shinya Yamanaka, a stem cell scientist.
Technology Academy Finland said Mr Torvalds's achievements had "had a great impact on shared software development, networking and the openness of the web".

It is the first time the bi-annual award has been split. Each man receives 600,000 euros ($752,000; 483,000).

Mr Torvalds developed the first version of a Linux operating system while studying at the University of Helsinki, Finland in 1991.

When he posted details of the project on Usenet he described the project as "just a hobby, [it] won't be big and professional".

The Linux kernel - the code that lets software and hardware work together - has since been through many revisions. It now powers a range of Linux-based systems behind many of the world's computer servers, digital video recorders, stock exchange equipment and Google's Android smartphone platform.
