Favorite Geek

Why limit it to computer geeks? But if you must, why no Richard Stallman option?

I completely agree. I'd choose Richard Stallman over Linus Torvalds as my favorite geek star. RMS and the free (libre) concept came before GNU/Linux and open source. RMS was and is ahead of his time -- a true visionary.
