    Wired 11.11 Interview with Linus Torvalds

    I just read the Wired interview with Linus Torvalds. I thought it was quite good, showing a lot of insight into what life is like for the creator of the Linux operating system. I was wondering what anyone else thought of it. You can read it at:

    Is there any mention to the SCO issue?

    Yeah, they talk about it on the second page in the second paragraph and some more near the end. I think the whole suit is ridiculous, if they have a problem they should take it up with IBM who gave him the code in question. It's their responsibility to check the code that they donate, not Linus'. Also, I don't know how he could have checked it; isn't Unix for-profit meaning that they don't give out source code!
