Deal with it

I imagine that Linus Torvalds gets a bit weary of the same old questions - which lets face it, would you want to answer over and over again? he's a humble guy....To remain "quiet" on certain issues is probably a smart move, he ain't a marketroid and he probably doesnt really care if you use linux or not - which , given the fact that you are FREE to if you choose, doesnt really give you the *right* to bitch about him and it. He wrote and "controls" an OS Kernel - he aint your daddy, he doesnt have to come up with answers to life the universe and everything just to please an audience and he's not on some personal crusade.... who the hell says he has to be....(and thankfully, he's not) ...Although an important part of the whole thing....Linux isnt the only kernel hacker /Linux developer out there, and while he does deserve credit, he doesnt really deserve a bunch of people bitching about the fact that he gave a "boring" interview... who cares, Nobody expects him to be Bob Hope.... He does what he does and he does it quite well. If you dont like linux, then hey, don't use it or go and write your own kernel - personally, it Wouldnt worry me either way. If you're expecting "enlightenment" and remain dissatisfied, go find some old beardy guy on a mountain somewhere. As for the "well to get "market share" competing with windows" camp, All I would say on the matter is....Linux aint windows....and long may it remain.
