    Dirk Hohndel was one of the earliest kernel contributors, and said that he wanted to present his take on the history of the project to provide a perspective that was not focused on the growth of Linux adoption, because for the founders of the kernel, it's primary appeal was as a technical challenge. -The Balancing Act Lifetime

  • George Bush Said:
