Why does Linux matter?

To arrogant? Hardly. Just not caught up in the BS of the freeloader suits that thought they would build a career out of deciphering linux for other suits. F that. Linux is winning for reasons far beyond its *leaders* wants or dislikes. It is succeeding because it solves problems. What better possible motive could one have for it's creation. "I dont worry about other OS's. just how can I make Linux better." And that is a not sufficient for some? Well lets see, 1 million man hours of develepment = $0 for Linus Torvalds. Sure, maybe a few speaking engagement here or there, but remember, this guy is not Bill Gates, say anything, ship anything do anything FUD, just protect his 40 billion dollar hoard. Lets see 40 billion/4000 companies = about 1million each? whats the problem here, Linus or Bill. Wake up. Oh, the Bill And Linda Gates foundation gave about 2 drops of sweat to you and me to the WTC effort, Yea thats right, relatively speaking, about 20-30 bucks in equivilent dollars. (you know the foundation set up AFTER the US Justice Dept was frying his ass and for PR purposes) Whatever, Journalists need crap to write about and linus doesnt care, so what. Paul
