One comment said it best "...linux is a labour of love" Listening to everyone complain that Linus isn't providing a guiding light or doesn't have the future dream in nicely wrapped bundle ready to present every reporter that asks makes me mad at first. Then I laugh, because this whole "scene" reminds me of the scene in Forest Gump where Forest is running across America because he just wanted to run. Well, soon enough everyone and their reporter brother is asking him what cause he is running for. Next you know it, there's hundreds of other runners following him. Then one day he just stops running. All the followers feel let down that he just stopped. That he didn't have some flashy words of wisdom or some great thought. As stupid as the idea seemed at the theatre, it makes perfect sense to me now. Maybe Linus is just running, and if you choose to run with him, that's your choice. He never asked for your money or for your patronage. He didn't wait for the votes to be counted. He's just doing his thing. If you enjoy it, so much the better. If you don't, make your own OS or buy someone else's. Just quit bitching.
