Linus Torvalds interview

Upside.com heeft een interview gepost met Linus Torvalds, de man acher Linux. Hier heb je alvast een vraag:

Upside: It strikes me that there were many points when you could have gone commercial or decided that the Linux operating system should become commercial, and you obviously decided not to do that. Why?

Torvalds: It was a question of my interests. I was always interested in doing Linux for the technical side. It didn't start as a project to make money, and when it became clear that it could make money, that wasn't why I did it. That would have changed my motive.

I'm happy that people are making money on Linux because I think it gives more depth to Linux. It brings in new motivations and new factors that wouldn't have been there if it [weren't] for the commercial end of the business. But when I started Linux, [going commercial] wasn't an option.
