Re: Is Linus's vision really this narrow?

Well you could say Linus doesn't have that good a crystal ball for seeing the future, take his very first post about Linux back in '91:-

It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s all I have :-(.

Linux today works on a slightly larger variety of hardware and architectures :-)
