From what I've read on this page, you guys seem not to appriciate what Linus did. As someone stated, if you don't like it, don't use it. I can read between the lines of the interview, and what I'm reading should be as clear to you as it is to me. Personally, I love the OS. Have you ever had the pleasure of showing an avid Windows user a Linux Desktop - Windowmaker, GNOME and KDE Themes? I know I have, and just seeing the look on their face validates whatever existance Linux holds. I love to explain to them that people now have the ability to construct a user interface to completely and utterly express artistic and practical abilities. So if you don't like it, don't use it. Who cares if Linus is arrogant, who wouldn't be a little high on themselves. I think you expect entirely too much from the guy who gave you an Open Source version of computer science. Thanks, Linus. Take a break. To those with disdain: give it a rest.
