i can understand linus

think about it. really think about what he said. he said he doesn't care. and that all he wants to do is make linux better than it is. i understand him completly. i mean he doesn't want to be a leader. he just wants to develop the linux kernel cause that's what he does for fun. and i understand that completly too. see he didn't put it on him self to be the leader of linux. everyone else did. i mean he didn't wake up one day and say "oh i'm going to be the leader of a reveloution, by writing a kernel for an operating system that's going to change the world completly and i'm going to give it out for free! that's right free!!! so everyone will be able to put it on their computers and worship me!!" i know it didn't work out like that. i read a few pages out of his biography.he was board, it was winter, he had a computer, he sent out for mimix. it makes sense that he would do something like write a kernel or software or tear apart his computer he just bought. hell that's what i did when i got bored of my i486, and now two years after that i know alot about computers than i ever would of. so, i understand linus. and for blueeyes. windowsxp is a resource hog. it doesn't matter if you have used it. it's posted everywhere that it takes alot. it takes 128 mgs of ram, 1.5gigs of hdd, and a pentuim 2 300mhz. now in days that's not alot but to people in the linux world it is. cause in the linux world you can get a 486 or pentuim and make it a stable beauty. now to make linux stable with a gui it takes only 16mgs of ram, a i386 or i486 proccessor and maybe 100mgs to 500mgs minimum. now if making windows an improvement with that much resources then windows didn't really make a step forward, it would of made a step backwards. plus xp has a software agreement were you don't own the software your just licencing it. meaning if m$ wants you to upgrade. you upgrade for what ever their asking or else.
