On the other hand, he is a tremendously charismatic personality, and the 
Linux kernel has basically grown up around him as a direct result of 
that charisma's effects on others. He's also been tremendously 
consistent in his aims and hasn't bent his personal values 
significantly (if at all) as a result of massive commercial pressure.

Sometimes I think it'd be nice if such a personality made his way into 
NetBSD core. :)
