>Is Linus more courageous than John Sculley was?

I'm not sure that matters.

No one, not even Linus, is in control of what people do with Linux,because it is open sourced. If someone has a vision based on using Linux, and the resource, they can run with it. That's not true of a closed source technology.

I do think that beating Microsoft is a terrible, destructive, distracting goal. But as long as coders stay focussed on buliding great things that stand on their own, Linux will be all right.
