Why is Linux Successful?

You've got to be kidding me?

While certain factors cited there was true, I think they could have explained better.

First on the list: "overcontrol" led to BSD's fragmentation. Isn't the Linux kernel largely decided on by Linus?

Second on the list: "If Mac and Windows didn't suck, people would've used them". DiBona was flame baiting there. The real question is, if Mac and Windows are opensourced will Linux be as successful as it is today? More to the point, as of late I don't think Linux has yet dominated those pretty pie charts in terms of usage.

Hmmmnnn... Must be the weather.
