Try these, for example, LinuxWorld's top five culled from Bruce's engaging site:
Loquacious Linus Torvalds
"Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect."
Linus Torvalds, September 28, 2003
Prescient Rob Pike
"The big computer industry battle of the future will be waged between Linux and Windows NT."
Rob Pike, researcher at Lucent Technologies Inc.'s Bell Labs unit, March 18, 1999
Down-to-Earth Daniel Dvorkin
"Complaining that [Linux] doesn't work well with Windows is like ... oh, say, evaluating an early automobile and complaining that there's no place to hitch up a horse."
Daniel Dvorkin, July 28, 2003
Stymied Scott Carr
"Where I work, there are several developers that are worried about their VB, Visual C++ Knowledge not being able to transfer well to GNU/Linux. They fail to see the fact that Microsoft is the one that made it to where their knowledge was Microsoft centric. They have each come to the conclusion that it is Linux developers' fault for not having programming IDEs that meet the needs of 'Today's IT Staff'."
Defiant Michael Park
"But it is not necessarily wise to write off the skinny kid with the sling quite yet."
Michael Y. Park, October 1, 2003
[commenting on OpenOffice vs. Microsoft Office]

yeah, what's all the fuss about
|tomn ahnol 02/10/04 11:47:20 AM EST|
tom - think you're right about that, hence all the furor over IP, copyright, employment contracts (we own your stuff), DRM, etc - now they want to make it illegal for us to keep the labors of our creative juices.

sorry to get serious, folks, and i won't take but a minute of your time. i'm tempted to suspect that the fuss about linux and the fsc is but one part of the elephant. wasn't there this guy Marx who said something about workers finally recognizing that the means of production - that thing that which the conniving classes are forever obsessed with owning - is really the workers themselves. now isn't this true with a vengeance in a world where more and more the really valuable part of a piece of equipment is the software that controls it, i.e., something that lives in the minds of programmers? hate to be fuzzy here, but i think that some of you will get it anyway, and perhaps will give better expression to my thought.
|Jason 02/07/04 04:22:30 PM EST|
"See, you not only have to be a good coder to create a system like Linux, you have to be a sneaky bastard, too."
-- Linus Torvalds
|Daniel 02/04/04 07:35:02 PM EST|
Here is another:
"Software is like sex. It's better when it's free".
-- Linus Toravalds.
