I *would* really like working for someone like Linus -- really sharp, really on-the-ball, really high expectations, really willing to listen to well-though-out "it might be better to..." (see his response to Ted T'so later in this thread).

Much better than working for some bureaucrat or politician who *thinks* he knows what he is doing.

With real books, I can donate them to charity when I'm done with them. Given that the general retail rate for used books is 60% of face value, that means the donation is worth about 30% (taking both state and federal tax deductions into account), so my effective printed book-price is 70% of face value. E-books need to be priced fairly against that.
