I have to agree. The amount of corporate money that is perceived to have been thrown into a kernel wrapped in software, they would have something further advance then what it is. It has Novell, IBM, like you said. I know there would be more, their the 2 that pop off the top of the head. I don't know how much the other Linux distro's make, but yeah they would make some $$
I would assume by about now, the hardware companies would be kissing linux ass and wanting to make drivers readily available for their hardware, hey doesnt have to have the source code thrown in with it. I couldnt give a shit, if it didnt, it doesnt with windows, and I have lived with it lol, so not having the source code available for a driver isnt going to bother me. IT would most likely work better.
It's a free system so who can sook. Its free had heaps thrown at it from various sources and It still can't can't come together to well.
I would be curious to see what I Linus Distro would be. IT would be nice to hear. IT has to have all the way up to a gui etc. I know he may not preffer gui etc, but it would be interesting to see what he would do to compliment it, instead of butcher it like some.
