Linux Liuns Torvalds is a finalist for this year's Millenium Technology Prize, prompting Scott Merrill with TechCrunch to do an e-mail interview. Interesting how Torvalds ignores the existence of ultrabooks - the Air is the exact same Intel-designed machine. Curious.

How does he ignore it when he points out that "notebook vendors continue to push those ugly and *clunky* things" referring to the fact that notebook vendors TRY to create clones/copies but they always end up half-assed, half baked and no matter how good the hardware is you're always going to end up having to tow around the boat anchor called Windows.


Uhm, a) you clearly haven't been keeping up with ultrabooks, and b) for Linus, Mac OS X is just as much of a boat anchor as Windows, probably even more so because MacBooks often don't like Linux all that much.
