Covering important topics like what he thinks about gpl v3, Microsoft in general and the niches of linux. He considers the desktop to be the best place for developement since it has varied and complex usages, compared to servers and embedded devices.
But is Linus still doing it 'just for fun'? His words: "Yes. Its still why I do it. The parts I do that end up beign fun have been different over the years — it used to be purely about the coding, these days I dont write all that much code myself, and now its mostly about the organizational side: merging code, communicating with people, pointing people in the right direction, and then the occasional bugfixing myself."

The degree of technical confidence is inversely proportional to the level of management.
