Linux "Should Security Enhanced Linux be designated as the sole security framework for Linux? While most security specialists would agree on the high quality of SELinux, proponents are arguing this framework is the only one that should be needed for the open-source operating system kernel. In fact, it would eliminate the need for the Linux Security Module, an open platform for outsider developers to build their own security frameworks for Linux. And this idea has raised the ire of Linux keeper Linus Torvalds."

Dunno, he seems to have a substantially calmer disposition than his counterparts (the Steves). Sometimes a benevolent dictator has to use ALL CAPS to differentiate decisions from suggestions. As soon as Linus starts rearranging furniture, we'll think about arranging an intervention on LKML.

And the tabloid^WIT press is right there to frame it as "crisis and conflict". The end of the world is nigh.
