Interesting but extremely short article, here's a clip, the URL will follow:

"Linus Torvalds, founder of the Linux kernel, made a startling comment
at LinuxCon in Portland, Ore., on Monday: "Linux is bloated." While
the open-source community has long pointed the finger at Microsoft's
Windows as bloated, it appears that with success has come added heft,
heft that makes Linux "huge and scary now," according to Torvalds.

"Has Linux failed?"
