[News] Linux Founder Disrespects Ancestors, Steals the Thunder

Hash: SHA1

Unjustifiable Criticism of Richard Stallman by Linus Torvalds

,----[ Quote ]
| It was 13 years after the release of GPLv2 that GPLv3 was released. During 
| those long years, a lot of effort spent in trying marginalize Richard 
| Stallman. It seems that Linus Torvalds may be anxious now because there is 
| new wind under Stallman’s wings ever since the release of GPLv3.   
| I suspect this attack piece on Richard Stallman by Linus Torvalds may have 
| been a tit-for-tat retaliation. Stallman recently asked members of a LUG 
| (Linux User’s Group) to rename their organization to GLUG (GNU/Linux User’s 
| Group) as a pre-condition of speaking there.   


The wit and wisdom of Linus Torvalds

,----[ Quote ]
| Linus Torvalds is known, rightly so, as the creator of the Linux kernel. What 
| began as his own hobby project now powers major data centres, enabled the 
| netbook market to exist, and has given rise to many a user group 
| install-fest. It's no wonder his opinion is canvassed regularly but the 
| answer may not always be what you expect. Here are some of the best and most 
| defining.     


Who's the Greatest Geek of All Time?

,----[ Quote ]
| Who was top of the list? We'll give you a hint: He's the father of our 
| favorite operating system. Other notables on there? Richard Stallman in 9th 
| position, and Paul Allen at 10.  



Black and white

,----[ Quote ]
| So I'm pretty well-known for not exactly being a huge fan of the FSF and
| Richard Stallman, despite the fact that I obviously love the GPLv2 and use it
| as the license for all my projects that I care about.
