Alan comments on Linus

Alan Cox gave a few comments about Linus in a talk at FOSDEM. For some reason Slashdot et al seem to be insinuating that there is some kind of feud between the two, but if you actually read the article you'll see there's not. Alan and Linus do have very different styles, they always have. There's nothing wrong with that though, in fact, it's probably a good thing. I guess it's better news if there's some kind of drama involved. On a side note, the article (and in fact any article I click on) on the ZDNet site is completely unreadable in both Mozilla and Firefox. I didn't know there were sites with such poor design methodology left in business. What a joke!

    -maybe designing around a 90% advertizement content is causing the difficulty. That article left me, as most ZDNet “reports” do, wanting to now read the story. They're great at creating a buzz over their “sample” but not at writing a real story. I want the rest now! Thanks for your comment on this story, though. You brought up a good point about /.

    I think it must be as I have recently started using a modified hosts file that removes ads and ZDNet reads fine for me. More info at http://www.everythingisnt.com/hosts.html
