No offense to Mr. Torvalds, but I am more interested in what Steve Jobs has to say about Microsoft's future.  If Microsoft were to vanish, I think it more likely that Apple (another proprietary software vendor) would take over the desktop market than Linux.

I wish the article had spent more time talking about the merits of open-source software and less time bashing proprietary software vendors.  As long as Linux advocates spend more time bashing proprietary software than singing the praises of open-source software solutions, I will continue to ignore them.
