Editorial So, Microsoft submits 20000 lines of code to the Linux kernel, all licensed under the GPL. Microsoft, who considers Linux a great threat, and once called the GPL a "cancer". Opinions on this one are flying all around us, but what does Linus Torvalds, Linux' benevolent dictator, think about all this?

Why are they making changes to the standard that ignores what was agreed upon in the final standard?

They can do that, as well as Google does with HTML standars, make changes firts and commit them to the commite later, that's an usual practice.

If the change is never commited then that change cannot be considered a standar.
