Torvalds is getting to be a bighead

Now he's telling me which desktop I should use.

Thanks, but I'll make my own decision. That's what freedom is about.

Yes, he's made a big contribution to free software. But he seems to think that entitles him to tell other people to follow him. It doesn't. He should stop trying to tell people what to do, and try cooperating. If he wants to use KDE, fine, his choice. I want to use Gnome, that's mine. And by the way, Linus, I think the FSF has done about 10 times as much for free software as you have, and I think it's about time you stopped flaming them and tried a little harder to work with them.

(No, I don't work for the FSF, and I've never seen or spoken to Eben Moglen or Richard Stallman.)
