"Linux kernel developer Linus Torvalds has a message for Microsoft Corp. executives who hinted that Windows source code may soon be made available: Talk is cheap."

"Asked to comment on whether Microsoft would make available its own Windows source code as some Microsoft executives have hinted in the past year, Torvalds said: "I'd like to start with talk is cheap. As a theoretical question, I'd be happy to see more and more people [releasing] open source code. I am not convinced that Sun [Microsystems Inc.] community license is a good license, but it is a step in the right direction. If Microsoft were to open up [Windows source code], I'd be more than thrilled."
