Re: How bad is Torvalds?
Please hand back all your TomToms and other satnav devices.
All your CCTV DVR's.
Most of your wireless ADSL routers, etc.
Anything with Android written on it anywhere, smartphone or tablet - currently outselling Windows phones by ENORMOUS ratios and even iPhones but people don't like you knowing that.
Most of the in-house networking gear in your workplace that's not purely switching stuff (e.g. Smoothwall boxes, content filters, WatchGuard firewalls, etc.)
All your Raspberry Pi's.
Most of the world's webservers, cloud servers, etc.
Almost all your "smart" devices like GPS trackers, fitness watches, ANPR, etc.
You don't want Linux on your desktop? Fine, but vast amounts of the world collapse without it, and it's actually running your ISP, almost certainly running your webhost, etc. Sure, there are alternatives that you could use instead but that's hardly the point.
This is like saying that Rayleigh have cornered the push-bike market, but Rolls Royce are a disaster because despite being in (and world leaders of) the automobile market, the aircraft market, the shipping market, generator markets, etc. they don't have a Rolls Royce bike that's as popular as Rayleigh.
