    Most people on this list holds no water against Stephen Fry, he uses things which he understands. He abides by bigger philosophies of what he think makes more sense to him.

    What ?? can you come again please.. !! To you Stephen Fry can be whatever you think he is but to the ordinary people he is just a normal celebrity and much lower in ranking to the ones that I mentioned !!
    read what he is !

    So just coz he uses a bland flavor of linux he is something else to you ?

    Hey hey hey .. lay off the Stephen-hate .. :D

    Discussion seems pointless .. using an OS is hardly a 'skill' a matter of recognition .. figuratively.

    Incorrect. He is a profound intellectual, what he did in past is behind. It doesn't matter what he did as teenager or child. What matters is what he is now.
    Your list contains Tom cruise, Alyssa milano, Sharon stone, Mel Gibson.
    Listen to his commentary on software design and operating system and freedom of knowledge. What he uses is product of what he knows and what his philosophies are regarding the usage.
    These people life achievement have very little to do with their usage of Apple, which is not the case with stephan fry.

    Are you listening to what is being said here?
    HE IS TALKING ABOUT LINUX, HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS USING AND WHY HE IS USING.
    I do not give a flying ?#@*&%!^$~ about what Tom Cruise uses, he is someone who practices scientology and makes stupid movies.
