What a crap-load of bullsh*t! It's not his project as much as the USA is not Bush's own country. Linux has outgrown Linus ever since he decided to share and let thousands of other programmers contribute and build the project. Would anybody argue that wikipedia is some single-persons project? Not in a second... so Linus better gets this into his head: It's not his own projectanymore, some group with a broader vision might as well take it from him here and now and move it beyond his narrow-minded "its my football, so you better behave like i said"-attitude: one word: FORKING!
