View attachment 3597 Windows 7's latest fan: Linus Torvalds | Tech Broiler | ZDNet.com Linus Torvalds, pictured at an unidentified Yodobashi store in Tokyo, Japan. Source: Chris Schlaeger (click to enlarge) I was determined to not write about Windows 7 today, because any analysis I wrote would get buried in all the other news. I was going to wait to deliver my Ã¢â‚¬Å“last wordÃ¢â‚¬Â sometime next week. But then a co-worker emailed me the photo above, clearly of Linus Torvalds at the software counter at Yodobashi, a Japanese consumer electronics store in Tokyo in front of a huge display of Windows 7 boxes, giving it the international sign of recognition: Thumbs Up. I HAD to post that. Of course, if you happen to be Japanese, the custom is to make the Ã¢â‚¬Å“VÃ¢â‚¬Â sign rather than a Ã¢â‚¬Å“Thumbs UpÃ¢â‚¬Â when you are being photographed, but I wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t criticize Linus for his trivial knowledge gap.
