Voice of the Masses: Who is the most important GNU/Linux/FLOSS person?

Phew! It has been a hectic few days over on our Indiegogo campaign page, but we’re making great progress thanks to you, the awesome Linux community. We’re only four days in, and have already reached almost a quarter of our target. Let’s all keep spreading the word!

In the meantime, we’re planning to record the first Linux Voice podcast next week. It’ll maintain all the goodness of Linux Lifestyle, so for our Voice of the Masses section we want to hear from you. In your opinion, who is the most important person in the GNU, Linux and Free Software world?

No doubt many of you will mention Richard Stallman, for starting GNU, creating the GPL, and having an impressive Unix-hacker beard. Others will suggest Linus Torvalds for being an effective leader of the Linux kernel and telling Nvidia what he thinks very bluntly. But perhaps there’s someone lesser known, who really deserves more credit. Let us know in the comments, and we’ll read out your musings next week!
