Interesting:
"Some Linux solution providers view the constantly evolving process
 of the posting of Linux libraries, patches, and updates to the
 Internet as inefficient and cumbersome, Davison said."

Gee, it's worked until now and we have a good OS.  What's the problem?

I think if the commercial world were to take Linux and make their own
"commercially driven" kernel, that'd be cool.  Because of the GPL the
mainstream kernel could always plunder their good ideas.
