"During a predictably banal interview of Linus Torvalds on
Radio Wall Street yesterday - where the interviewer clearly hoped
for some tips about how to turn Linux into a pot of gold for
investors - our hero had a couple of interesting things to say
about the Microsoft case."
"Torvalds said that "the major impact is psychological" and that
"Microsoft is no longer the American dream. People see Microsoft as
a fairly nasty company."
"He added that he didn't follow Microsoft much, and had never
met Bill Gates. Asked if he had any particular questions he would
want to put to Gates, he said: "We don't have that much in common.
There could be an embarrassing silence" but if they met, "I'd ask
him out for lunch because of the absurdity of it all."
