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.

WereCatf,

"We wouldn't for example have Android if binary blobs weren't allowed."

Or maybe we would and open hardware drivers would be more common in android devices. There's no definite way of predicting what would happen to the timeline if variables like this were tweaked.
