Re: [News] Interview with Torvalds About Linux

After takin' a swig o' grog, Roy Schestowitz belched out
  this bit o' wisdom:

The discussion of SSD's is very interesting!

Also this aside:

   And that one has been x86-based for the last few years (basically since
   I decided that there was no long-term desktop survival for PowerPC -
   when Apple switched away it became clear that the only thing that
   could possibly challenge x86 on the all-important desktop was ARM).

   . . .

   I'm going to be very interested to see if I'll grow an ARM
   machine this year or the next, but it will require it to be a good
   netbook platform, and while the potential is there, it's never quite
   happened yet.

Q:	How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?
A:	Two, one to hold the giraffe, and the other to fill the bathtub
	with brightly colored machine tools.
