"Torvalds encourages programmers to focus on less-sexy enhancements."
"With the most recent upgrade to the Linux kernel out on the street, open-source programmers should now begin focusing their efforts on less-glamorous enhancements to the operating system, says Linux inventor Linus Torvalds."
"Delivering last night's keynote to a boisterous LinuxWorld crowd in San Jose, Torvalds prodded open-source programmers to shy away from the "sexy" task of scaling up the OS to compete with commercial Unix flavors. Instead, he said, programmers should actually focus on scaling down the operating system for user-friendly use on devices from desktop PCs to PDAs."
