Linux The BBC interviews Torvalds. I like this bit: "For me, Linux on the desktop is where I started, and Linux on the desktop is literally what I still use today primarily - although I obviously do have other Linux devices, including an Android phone - so I'd personally really love for it to take over in that market too. But I guess that in the meantime I can't really complain about the successes in other markets." Linux on the desktop is quite passe. Phones and servers is where it's at.

that He did more harm than good in some areas (i.e. allowing binary blobs... or refusing to define an stable ABI in the name of change).


That is a matter of opinion. IMHO it was a positive thing he did those things, not a negative thing. We wouldn't for example have Android if binary blobs weren't allowed.
