For most people, a hobby is just an opportunity to kill some time when the Internet is down. But some hobbies spiral out and become something more. You may have heard the tales of the people who managed to turn their hobbies into and spent their entire lives doing what they truly loved. Among those lucky bastards, there are some even more exceptional cases, whose hobbies affected all of humanity.
Did you know that about 1.5% of people use the Linux as their preferred operating system? In case you didn’t know Linux functions pretty much the same as Windows or macOS, only you don’t have to pay for it. It’s one of the most secure, reliable, and versatile systems in the world! Most servers and supercomputers are running on Linux, BTW, not to mention every single Android device out there.
Linus Torvalds created Linux simply because he was bored. According to him, the creation of an operating system for him was only a hobby and he did not expect it to turn into something this huge. This is probably why he has nothing to do. After inventing the fastest operating system in the world that can calculate a trillion digits after the decimal point of the number Pi and do many other extraordinary things, Linus has all the time in the world to work on his other hobbies.
