    Is Linux For Losers?

    Is Linux For Losers?

    NEW YORK , Daniel Lyons - Theo de Raadt is a pioneer of the open source software movement and a huge proponent of free software. But he is no fan of the open source Linux operating system.

    "It's terrible," De Raadt says. "Everyone using it don't realize how bad it is. And the Linux people will just stick with it and add to it rather than stepping back and saying, 'This is garbage and we should fix it.'"

    "You know what I found? Right in the kernel, in the heart of the operating system, I found a developer's comment that said, 'Does this belong here?' "Lok says. "What kind of confidence does that inspire?

    Torvalds, via e-mail, says De Raadt is "difficult" and declined to comment further.

    Bing it.
