    torvalds, not because i support his work, but because hes an angry swede, and Sir bill is a *****. he would go cry to his lawyers when he got hit.

    Testing? What's that? If it compiles, it is good, if it boots up, it is perfect. ~ Linus Torvalds

    Fair fight? No problem, Linus winns by walk over (gates crashed)
    unfair fight? Well, then Linus just makes an "int 0x80" with 0x1337C0DE in eax and the penguins and the hurd of GNU comes to assist

    Gates and his "security team" lost to a pie thrower in the early 90s, so Linus gets my vote.

    I voted for Bill because I'm shure Billy could burry Linus in legal problems, thus no need for real violence.

    But the real battle, would be between Steve Ballmer and Richard Stallman

    Good observation, kriss, about the thing between Steve Ballmer and Richard Stallman! I was just lmfao when I read that! How true, how true.

    The 'rumble in the jungle' shouldn't be a physical one, though. It should be along the line of a 'haX0r warz' thing. That would be the REAL deal!

    So, we now have two showdowns: Bill Gates vs. Linus Torvalds and Steve Ballmer vs. Richard Stallman.

    Strangely enough, I think the one between Ballmer and Stallman would be the more interesting one!
