Apologies for not having seen this in the article.. I glanced through the
interview, saw the quote "The Linux community is very vocal and for a
while Linux was extremely trendy. I have the impression that Loki bought
into the hype" and decided I had better things to read.
On a related note - does anyone know what the story with Loki actually is
at this stage? I went to their website, and apart from a mis-dated news
entry, everything looks hunky-dory.
