Recently the readers of Slashdot had the opportunity to submit questions to the father of Linux, Linus Torvalds. Out of all the hundreds of questions that were submitted, the top 12 were chosen based on popularity and sent to Linus.
There are some interesting insights and thoughts on copyright and licensing, monolithic vs. micro-kernel architecture, git, forking and fragmentation, and computer hardware. He also goes into what he would have done differently with Linux if he could do it over again, as well as his future and him passing the reigns of Linux to someone else (spoiler: Not anytime soon!).
You can find his answers here.
