"Of course Linux is forking. It's always forking. But--important
lesson ahead--it doesn't matter. Why? Because Linux is a Gnu Public
License open-source OS. And that means that everyone gets to see
and use your changes."
"In Linux, good changes are incorporated into the one true,
Linus Torvalds blessed Linux kernel, and other changes aren't.
If a change doesn't make the canonical code, it withers on the
vine. In other open-source projects, like Apache and Samba, there's
no Linus, but it works the same way. The good get in, the bad are
tossed on the junk pile."
"Number One: Linux Vendors Are Sane.
United they stand, divided they fall. I know that. They know that.
And, that's the end of the story."
