Here's an interesting note that I received from Ward Meier --DS:


MacSurfer's Headline News posted this link on April 11th bringing into question the validity of the quote that has everyone up in arms about OS X:

From that article it seems pretty clear that either Torvalds was
misquoted and people are trying to use it as ammunition toward their
cause, or that he was not willing to back something that he did say.
Either way, he is definitely not standing by the statement of which he
is accused of making. Hope this is helpful.
