Memo to Microsoft: stop attacking Linux
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "I was at a Linux World Expo in San Jose a couple of years ago and attended Linus Torvalds' keynote speech. Before Linus took the stage there was an introduction by John "MadDog" Hall. The audience members were asked to raise their hands if any of them had contributed anything to Linux that was generally included in one of the major distributions. Several hundred (maybe more) hands were raised. Hall then asked if anyone attending had contributed anything that was generally included with Windows. Just one or maybe two people raised their hands."
