I think he's cool

Esp. about the GNU Linux stuff. RHS is stupid and calling Linux 'GNU LINUX' is stupid... but than again - I couldn't care less. Oh, and to all the people who think that Linus is actually not interested in other operating systems - I pfffttt you! He was merely avoiding political questions, becuase whatever answer he would give there - there will be many people not to like it. And about using no 'marketting eye', I fully understand him and agree with it. Let Suse/Redhat/Mandrake/whatever (debian left out intentionally!) care about marketing. Linux is a programmer, a scientists if you'd like. Not a marketing man. And if you're looking for an OS coordinator who is solely a marketing person, check out Windows. Again, I 'pfftt' at you, fools.
