I much prefer to take a reactionary stance and see what people actually
complain and care about, rather than having a "5-year plan".
I honestly think this state of mind is what has made Linux the success story it is. It
speaks volumes about "satifiying customer needs" as the business world would put it. As
far as I see, Linus never wanted to write a Unix clone, he just wanted to
HAVE a Unix-like OS to run on his 386.
