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.

I don't really care what reality you live in.

The Linux Desktop HAS taken off, it is flying. How far it will fly and how high is yet to be seen.

Nowadays you don't have to be a geek to use Linux. It's every bit a mature as Windows or Mac OSX (if they are mature, that is).

Personally, I don't consider any system mature at the moment. They are all lacking quite a bit considered what's possible to implement.

But you have another opinion, Mr.Noname, and that's fine. We just don't agree.
