No Wonder Linux has not Displaced MS
by Jim Slade on Wed 10th Oct 2001 19:20 UTC

I can say I was not surprised at all about the comments that Linus pays no attention to other OS/s. The failure to learn from other operating systems has been the number one reason why Linux has not displaced Windoze. I speak with many reporters and a frequently hear that they dread even writing about Linux because anything negative they include about it, no matter how true, will bring torrents of the most vicious flames imaginable. The refusal to learn from others is the greatest failing of Linux.
