Hall explains the allure of Linux

Author: JT Smith

The Jerusalem Post features Jon "maddog" Hall in an article that explains what Linux is. Hall explains why programmers contribute to Linux: "Why do amateur painters paint? They go out with their
easel and brush, and paint, hoping it is going to turn out
to be beautiful. Do they then take that painting and lock it
in a closet? No, they put it up on their wall because they
want people to see it -- to have judges look at it and say,
that is wonderful but if you put the paints a little different
you could make the water seem more lifelike. Then they
can take it down and start again, or improve it."
