Linus' level of maturity.

Regarding the last post ("Linus needs to grow up") I don't think you can blame Linus for answering the way he did, I actually liked the interview, and thought to myself while reading it: "Oh my God, Linus must have answered these questions about a billion times..." I think his carelesness can be interpreted in two ways: 1: He develops Linux because he likes it, it's not like he's earning millions here. 2: He likes developing Linux, but you'll have to understand that it's not him who is in charge of the entire development. He just started the thing, millions worldwide will have to do the worrying as well as him. On the issue whether it's good or bad for Linux to be reinventing programs similar to programs from other OS's, I think that it's good, it means that it'll be revised from scratch, everything will be brand new, no old source code will remain. It'll be optimized for todays hardware and todays needs... - Anders K. Madsen
