    In a Wired issue (can't find the exact one: there was an article on Torvalds entitled "Leader of the Free World"), there was something "Memo From the Future". It was about Torvalds being hired by Microsoft.

    I remember that one. Something about Microsoft ditched Windows, and started to make a GUI for Linux. I think they called it Winux.

    I had to laugh during the whole article. Absolutely hilarious.i

    Had to do some searching, but found the link to the article.

    Linus Torvalds steps out.

    Just curious... have they ever met?
    And in private (without the press) or in the open?

    Anybody?

    I know that with most businesses that no matter how much you hate the other person, you usually know your compeditor. I would think that they would've met at some point. Then again, Bill is a prick as is known so I dunno. Good question.

    I'd heard they'd met in private, and Linus, being the younger and fitter, won in four rounds...

    That's getting quoted. I needed a new sig. Thanks.
