If you think you have what it takes to dethrone the King of Linux, Linus Torvalds himself, then you need to take a Facebook quiz, announced Jennifer Cloer, Director of Communications & Community with The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux.

The thing is that a lot of people only know one thing about Linus Torvalds – that he’s the one who came up with the Linux operating system. They don’t know more intimate details about his job, like what text editor he uses, or how he reacts when he gets an ugly patch submission. The question is could you do what Linus does every day? Could you replace the King of Linux?

To find out, all you have to do is take a Facebook quiz appropriately entitled Could you do Linus Torvalds’ Job?. Not only will you find out if you could do Linus Torvalds’ job, you will get custom badges based on your score, badges you could use to brag to your friends, family, and loved ones. You will also get an exclusive 25% discount to attend LinuxCon and the 20th Anniversary LinuxCon Gala - events that Linus will attend.

We “wanted to give our dedicated Facebook fans a unique way to get involved in the celebration and to share it with their friends, bringing even more people to the Linux community,” explained Jennifer Cloer. “The 'Could You Do Linus Torvalds’ Job?' Quiz is just five short questions and will be live throughout the summer. When you arrive at LinuxCon, the badge you earn online will be waiting for you at the registration desk. Slap it on, and wear it with pride (or shame)!”

In related news, The Linux Foundation recently announced that its newest member is the world’s largest automobile manufacturer by sales and production, Toyota. By joining The Linux Foundation, Toyota aims to maximize its investment in Linux while at the same time foster open innovation throughout the automotive ecosystem.

Here's the badge I got after taking the quiz.
