Editorial So, Microsoft submits 20000 lines of code to the Linux kernel, all licensed under the GPL. Microsoft, who considers Linux a great threat, and once called the GPL a "cancer". Opinions on this one are flying all around us, but what does Linus Torvalds, Linux' benevolent dictator, think about all this?

I basically agree with what Linus says in TFA, but of course since MS has made threats against Linux in the past I think it would be wise to treat them with a little bit of healthy suspicion!
