In een interview met IDG verteld de 'vader' van Linux over de toekomst van Linux, de plannen en meer.
IDG: We've read that you think Microsoft will jump on the Linux bandwagon.
Torvalds: Eventually... Microsoft is so essentially market-driven... Maybe for political reasons they wanted to wait until Linux has 15 percent of the market. Hey, it will happen. They'll go where the money is.
IDG: What do you think about Microsoft's campaign to discredit Linux, i.e. with Mindcraft benchmarks and executives publicly criticizing Linux?
Torvalds: It was kind of expected... I'm taking it as a kind of backhanded way of acknowledging Linux. They've done the same thing against everybody else in the industry.
