Ok, folks, let's NOT keep joking and try to give a sense to our argumentations!
1 - The future is out of our possibilities. We can talk about the present and its historical evolution and... sounds good! Just look at this document.
2 - There are VERY VERY huge resources about Linux Kernel. Not as good as in the past but Google can yet be your friend.
3 - We can, yet another time, look at the present and at history: so many smartphones, appliances, router, firewall and tv use Linux Kernel. More motivation?
