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?

Your title is Inaccurate. You have no quote from Linus saying that. Furthermore you said:

While I think it's perfectly acceptable to for the Free and open source community to be a little more vigilant when it comes to Microsoft's forays into this world, the outright blind hatred is nothing but a detrimental force that holds the Free and open source community back.


Do you have any proof that "outright blind hatred" is how I, or for that matter anyone else feels about Microsoft? No, you don't. So why did you write this article? Is it to make the community look bad?

Congratulations, you've succeeded. In many ways this is one of the stupidest articles I've ever read. No documentation. No evidence. Just a statement, which appears to be your opinion only.

Well, your article has had one effect. You've just been promoted onto my "IDIOTS" list.
