Summary:
After this crucial contribution, Cox effectively became Number 2 in the Linux kernel devlopment team. As such, he was a natural candidate for Red Hat when the company started making hackers offers they couldn't refuse. Thanks, in part, to the networking code he had helped to develop, he was able to work from his home in Wales, where he has also become an important voice in UK debates about software patents and ramifications of technology issues for civil liberties.
