Linux CreatorLinus は、1969 年 12 月 28 日、フィンランドのヘルシンキで生まれました。1988 年にヘルシンキ大学に入学し、コンピューター サイエンスの修士号を取得して卒業しています。修士論文のタイトルは "Linux: A Portable Operating System" でした。世界で最も重要なソフトウェア共同開発プロジェクトが誕生した瞬間です。1991 年に彼は Linux カーネルを開発したことを発表し、“it won’t be big and professional (大規模でプロフェッショナルなものにはならない)" とはっきり言っています。しかし実際にはそうではありませんでした。彼の謙虚な言葉を覆し、Linux は世界で最も広く浸透するオペレーティング システムになりました。今日、Linux カーネルは Linux オペレーティング システムの根幹となり、何十億個の Android デバイスを動かし、ChromeOS に使われ、あらゆる業界やフォーム ファクターに浸透しています。スマートフォン、テレビ、家電、車、原子力潜水艦、航空管制システム、証券取引、そして科学研究にも、すべて Linux が使われています。Linux は、インターネットやクラウド コンピューティングの基盤でもあります。2005 年、Linus がパフォーマンスやスケールのニーズを満たすフリー/オープン ソース版のバージョン管理ツールがないことを理由に、わずか 10 日間で Git を開発したことは有名です。現在、Git はソフトウェア開発ばかりでなく、コンフィギュレーション管理などのバージョン管理処理にも広く利用され、DevOps 文化にとっても不可欠なものとして浸透しています。2000 年には Time 誌による Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century (今世紀最も重要な人々) の 17 人目に選ばれました。さらに 2004 年には、同じく Time 誌が彼を Most Influential People in the world (世界で最も影響力を持つ人々) の 1 人に選んでいます。さらに 2008 年には、「後に世界中で広く利用される Linux カーネルとなる新しいオープン ソース オペレーティング システムを生み出した功績が認められ」、フィンランドの独立系基金 Technology Academy Finland から Millennium Technology Prize を贈呈されました。また、2014 IEEE Computer Society Computer Pioneer Award も受賞しています。彼は技術の巨匠として、Computer History Museum Hall of Fellow (コンピューター歴史博物館のフェローの殿堂) に選出され、Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper、Tim Berners-Lee、Gordon Moore、Ken Thompson、Dennis Ritchie、Steve Wozniak などの技術エリートの仲間入りをしました。Torvalds は、標準 Linux カーネルに新しいコードを組み込む際には、最高の決定権を持っています。
VMwareDirkはVMwareのチーフ オープン ソース オフィサーで、同社のオープン ソース プログラム オフィスを主導し、オープン ソース プロジェクトの利用やプロジェクトへの貢献に関わる取り組みや戦略を指揮しています。また、VMwareとオープン ソース コミュニティとの意思疎通をはかるために、社内共通の価値感やプロセスの実現を推進しています。Before joining VMware, Dirk spent almost 15 years as Intel’s Chief Linux and Open Source Technologist. Intelに入社する前は、SUSEのチーフ テクノロジ オフィサーや、ドイツ銀行のUnixアーキテクトとして働いていました。Dirkは1990年代初頭からさまざまなオープン ソース プロジェクトにおけるアクティブな開発者であり貢献者です。最近ではおもにSubsurface dive logプロジェクトとこれに関わる多くのオープン ソース プロジェクトに取り組んでいます。The Linux Foundationのボード メンバーでもあります。ドイツのヴュルツブルク大学において数学とコンピューターサイエンスの学位を取得しています。米国オレゴン州ポートランド在住。
