Linux "Linus Torvalds was only 22 when he decided in 1991 to share with friends and colleagues the code of Linux, the new OS he had created. The computer science student at the University of Helsinki could not imagine the revolution his decision would cause through the IT industry in the years to come. In this interview, he talks about why he released the code, offers his views on Microsoft and says the future belongs to open source."

I bet linus probably thinks the biggest threat to open source is the GPL v 3 license . there is probably no surer way of killing linux then somehow making a grave error with it. If they cut out commercial companies for instance it would be bad.
