My name is Linus Torvalds, and not Linux Torvalds. Many blogs and publishing sites use Linux Torvalds as my name. Linux is the kernel that is used by the Linux operating system. For instance:
I am a computer scientist born in Helsinki, Finland. I studied at the University of Helsinki from 1988 to 1996. I'm mainly known for Linux kernel and git. Today, Linux has become the most popular free operating system. See my wikipedia page.
I chose the penguin to be the logo of Linux. A picture of penguin appears on many desktop computers that run Linux.
