http://www.linuxinsider.com – Google's Nexus One phone is a winner, according to Linus Torvalds, founder of the operating system it's based on. "I generally hate phones," explained Torvalds, who is known as "the father of Linux," in a blog post on Saturday. "At the same time I love the concept of having a phone that runs Linux, and I've had a number of them over the years," he wrote. Torvalds has rarely used the phones he has had, including Google's original G1, he said. However, he's been a happy camper since he bought the Nexus One last week. (General)
