LXer: The Perils of Linux Maturity: Torvalds Fakes Emerge in Twittersphere

Published at LXer:

Rolex, movies, Gucci, and even Sharpie pens, among other consumer goods, are well known for reaching a level of ubiquity where people start producing fakes or knock-offs. From our industry, even Steve Jobsí personal brand warranted a knock-off in the form the FakeSteveJobs blog. Linux, too, has reached that level of ubiquity and maturity. We all use Linux every day via our bank ATMs, our cars, our netbooks, the Internet (Google, Facebook and more), and the list goes on. Thus, the Linus Torvalds knock-offs have naturally come forth.
