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?

Butt kissing 101

This is the proper way to kiss up to someone. Flatter them endlessly, put them on a stage, and insult anyone who disagrees with them.

The only disease is in the mind of the person writing this article.

When a person slaps you every day for 20 years, it's right to hate them. I don't care to listen to people who say "don't hate." They can go rot.

MSFT has hit Linux every day for 20 years, and is a criminal corporation. I know Linus is a conservative, and I do not respect his opinions just because I use his software. Linus's attitude is the very reason why GNU came into being.

Linus is a boomer, and has his own blinders on, just as the person who wrote this vitriolic sham piece that poses as news.

Now they release drivers, and I'm supposed to say, 'oh thanks kind MSFT, for publishing drivers, after attempting to destroy me for 20 years.' Thanks. Yeah, not bloody likely.

Intel and MSFT are criminals, and dinosaurs, and it's right to hate them with the same intensity that one hates Pedophiles.

I do not buy MSFT "certified" hardware. I do not buy MSFT software. I've had it shoved down my throat everywhere, and I feel no reason why I should aplogize to some troglodyte for hating MSFT.

Go cuddle your MSFT stocks and enjoy your wet dreams of being a "journalist."

You disgust me, why don't you go to work for CNN? or FOX?
