I almost agree with Linus

Many of you are hammering Mr. Torvalds for his non-interest in other OS'es. Why? I dont care if the next OS is better - I like what I have. I dont try to get every person to run Linux - If other like waht they have, then thats the right choice for them. Do I want to focus on the future - No (to a certan degree). If I did, I would not accomplish anything (Hey lets wait for a talking computer, instead of writing a display-driver.???) He states that he does not care what others think - thats not arrogant. It sound more like some envy him because they cannot ignore what others think of them. Thinks about it - dont shout at him, or anybody else for that matters, just because you disagree but try to look at it from the other persons perspective. As for the "best os(tm)", I somehow hope that linux is not the best, because then someone else has the plesure of using a better OS than I. I'm certanly not believe in others misfortune!!!
