Linus Torvalds conducts an interview with the IEEE Computer Society to explain how he sits today in terms of his thoughts with Linux.

Torvalds is as humble and genuine as you might expect.

He explains that Linux "just did it differently" and explains how happy he is about "leaving something behind" that could change computing for everyone forever.

"Linux made it clear how well open source works, not just from a technical standpoint, but also from a business, commercial, and community standpoint," says Torvalds.

He also goes on to explain how happy he is about the success of the Git source control system.

Torvalds has some ideas for what is going to happen in the future and he is a quietly inspirational man.

It's 8:47 long and worth the investment.
