Linux "No matter what strides the new generation of open-source companies make, they all owe a big debt to Torvalds. In 1991 the Finnish programmer started Linux as a project at the University of Helsinki. Fourteen years later the reverberations are still being felt." In this email interview Torvalds discusses his thoughts on where open source is heading and the challenges the Linux community faces.

Not having standard toolkit for linux has hurt LotD

We have a standard toolkit, but very few are using it directly. Most people are using GTK+ or QT ... or perhaps FLTK, eFLTK, FoX or whatever.

This is not only true for GNU/Linux systems, but also on other platforms incl. Windows.

Windows does have a standard toolkit, but it's not the only toolkit running on windows. There's also WxWidgets, FoX, FLTK and GTK and java-something.

And I'm pretty much using all of them (I'm not sure about FoX toolkit).

BTW. I got my account :p
