Linux leader and founder Linus Torvalds is moving with his family to Portland, Ore., farther from hectic Silicon Valley and closer to his employer, the Open Source Development Labs in Beaverton. Until , Torvalds worked at Transmeta, a processor designer in Santa Clara, Calif.
"For the last year, since I've been working entirely remotely, we've been in the position that we could live anywhere," Torvalds said in an e-mail interview. "The weather scares us a bit, but on the other hand we know a lot of people up there, and they all seem happy. And it's bound to be less crazy than Silicon Valley."
