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.

You're being very rude, Mr.Noname. So I modded down the post after the one I'm answering.

We agree that is yet to be seen how far it will fly and how high. We only disagree on whether Linux on the desktop is flying or not.

I consider it flying because it has an usergroup of consideral size (2% is A LOT), and I consider it flying due to the functionality of the desktop. It lacks nothing in funcitionality compared with other major desktops (read Windows and Mac OSX).

Why do you, Mr.Noname [identify yourself], consider it non-flying?
