Another SCO thread? Don't we have enough of these already?

Yah, I've read this article about a week or so ago, seeing it on several sites.. nothing really new. Just a Torvalds interview regarding the SCO case.

Come now, trickykid,
The article came out July 8 (at least at CNET.com), and it's not really about the SCO FUD. The first couple of questions are about that, and the rest are about Linus' move to OSDL, his thoughts on the direction Linux has come and is going, and other delvings into Linus' thoughts about the kernel in general. It's not a particularly clever or different interview, but it isn't really about SCO either. . .

Now I'm wondering whether you're being sarcastic. . . hmm. . .

Okay, I should have added at the end of my last post.. "regarding the SCO case and some other topics..... "

Better?

But I swear I read that same article on another site a week or so ago, before July 4th.

A bit, but not perfect. ;) It really is more about Other Topics than SCO. The SCO stuff seems to be in there just to capitalize on the perceived need for "commentary" about the case. . .

I don't doubt that a similar one was up, but I've read at least two *different* interviews of Linus in the last couple of weeks. . . This one is better than the last one.

Took a gander, and actually read the entire thread. I noticed no mention of Alan Cox in the "name mentioning" portion, did he go astray for a while?

Also, since he mentioned 2.5.x and 2.6, does anyone know a solid month for an ETA on 2.6?



Cool

In defence of tricky, there was another interview out a week or so ago. Evolution puked out a link to it on my summary page. I read both and this one was diff.

Gotta believe these interviews are some kind of damage control.

IMHO

there is way too much discussion as to whether or not the words appeared elsewhere. this is silly.

i will try and refrain from posting links to articles in the future.

my goal was to merely point hungry eyes in the direction of yali (yet another linus interview).

I apologize to trickykid, I was just being facetious in pointing out that this wasn't *quite* the same interview as the one Linus did a week or so ago.

Re: 2.5 -> 2.6:
I think most of the excitement has come about simply because Linus is back, actively participating, and people who remember the rate at which kernels in the 1.x-2.2 phase were released are happy he's back. Who knows if the kernel releases will come more often than they have in the recent past, we'll just have to wait and see. I'm thinking that the kernel is more complicated and the things people want to do with it are more complicated that the release rate will not go as high as it was back in the day. . .

I didn't mean to imply that your posts were not appreciated.

After all I did click the link and read the article

I only meant to point out that there were 2 (at least) interviews and there was reason for confusion.

Personally, I tend to check out your links

Hi,
Linus released the last 2.5.x dev kernel today. There will be no more 2.5.x kernels released on the main trunk (there may be more from Alan Cox et al.)

currently reconsidering whether or not i want to continue participating with linuxquestions.org - the attitudes are just a little too militant at times.

thanks for the link.
