    Linus Torvalds:

    >> What matters are the people - and companies - that actually develop and contribute code, and make the future happen.

    Matthew Garrett:

    > Sure. And do you want 4 more enterprise clustering filesystems, or another complete rewrite of the page allocator for a 3% performance improvement under a specific database workload, or do you want a bunch of teenagers who grow up hacking this stuff because it's what powers every device they own? Because honestly I think it's the latter that's helped get you where you are now, and they're not going to be there if the thing that matters to you most is making sure that large companies don't feel threatened rather than making sure that the next 19 year old in a dorm room can actually hack the code on their phone and build something better as a result. It's what brought me here in the first place, and I'm hardly the only one.
