michael has some good commentaries.  this one was a bit too long, but
still good.  the juicy part was the last 2 paragraphs though.  ;)

i'm sure he's not lying about anything, but i find myself wishing that a
"linux spokesperson" like mad dog or perens would write something on
this topic.

and do chips really have "drivers" per se?   did intel really create a
"pentium driver"?   never heard of it.  i thought they just release
specs and an instruction set.

btw, if you like vi, check out cgdb.sourceforge.net.  it's totally
trippy!  the coolest thing i've seen in awhile.
