Linus is no more than a man like you or I. He has incredible programming skills, and started something that has become HUGE. That every one of you flaming him probably use on a daily basis. MS's kernel is a few hundred thousand lines long, even if it were open source noone could do sh*t with it. This is an interview, you can not expect every question and answer that you read to be the most enlightening experience of your life. If Linus did not stay focused on what he does, we would not have such a stable product. Leave it up to RedHat or Corel to do the marketing, or KDE and GNOME developers to research the other OS's and add the fuctionality there. Talking about biting from the hand that feeds. Wake up and stop being dumb, we all want Linux to be the biggest and best OS out there, but it can and never will be if you dont give it the time and dedication it deserves, which Linus has already proved he has now 10 years in development. Think about it.
