    Linus Torvalds > Bill Gates

    It's official. Intel prefers Linux to Windows.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    It's good to see (Admiral) Grace Hopper in the list - as an ex-COBOL hacker, if it wasn't for her, I'd probably still be paying off a mortgage!

    Maybe Alan Turing's description could be modified?

    Alan Turing (played a major role in deciphering German Code in WWII... oh... and invented the computer)

    Not sure why Steve Jobs is so high... yes he's influential but he's had more of an impact than Gates-y? Very debatable.
