Linus Torvalds and Japanese whisky

It seems Japanese whisky has another celebrity admirer. Well, perhaps not a celebrity anywhere but in the most geeky of households, but certainly a great man: Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux operating system (which is almost certainly part of your everyday life, whether you know it or not).

He was presented with a bottle of Hibiki 17 by Linux kernel developer and maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman during a question and answer session at the LinuxCon Japan 2011 conference in Yokohama at the start of June (photo).

By the end of the day, Greg tweeted this: ": official Linux 3.0 whisky given to Linus 2day and finished... . Someone enjoyed it:
