I think many of you made some very stupid comments. Who the hell cares about Linus's negative attitude? I sure don't. Wouldn't it bother you a little with the hype behind Linux and getting bothered by everyone. The reporters alone are enough to drive me nuckin futs. Linux as a kernel is very nice and has many benefits and cool features but when you slap it together with GNU software is where it becomes weak and insecure. I will have to say *BSD 0wnz and is a real OS (along with Solaris, Windows, HP-UX and etc.) not some well coded kernel with third party utilities. Frankly besides the kernel Linux bites. You have to many vendors and no standards in place which creates problems in hundreds of areas. Maybe a FreeBSD like approach would be better for the tree, but at this rate we will never see that. Also for those who feel like flamin me sit back and take a look at the big picture and then reasses the situation. Linux is not ready for the corporate enviroment, yet. BTW, all my servers are being migrated to *BSD or Plan9 ;p
