Here's a five page interview with Linus Torvalds, covering a
little of everything: from the genesis of Linux as free software,
to opening the source to Transmeta's code morphing language, to the
future of Open Source software: "The future won't be all Open
Source. That's clear. I think it's going to be one accepted way of
doing things, and it will take over in certain niches, especially
in niche markets where you don't have a lot of economics of scale.
I mean developing software is really expensive. It is only cheap to
copy. So if you want to make money on software, you have to sell
millions and millions. That's obviously what Microsoft does."
