Microsoft secara mengejutkan memberikan patch untuk kernel Linux (http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/features/2009/Jul09/07-20LinuxQA.mspx). Banyak pihak terutama yang fanatik terhadap gerakan open source menyatakan menolak patch-patch yang diberikan oleh Microsoft. Lalu bagaimana tanggapan Linus Torvalds (sebagai komandan utama yang bisa menyatakan menerima atau menolak sebuah patch ke kernel Linux) ? Seperti yang kita tahu, meskipun semua pihak bisa men-submit patch ke kernel Linux, namun keputusan terakhir tetap di tangan Linus Torvalds.

Berikut jawaban asli dari Linus Torvalds seperti dikutip Linux Magazine :

“I haven’t. Mainly because I’m not personally all that interested in driver code (it doesn’t affect anything else), especially when I wouldn’t use it myself.

So for things like that, I just trust the maintainers. I tend to look at code when bugs happen, or when it crosses multiple subsystems, or when it’s one of the core subsystems that I’m actively involved in (ie things like VM, core device resource handling, basic kernel code etc).

I’ll likely look at it when the code is actually submitted to me by the maintainers (Greg [Kroah-Hartman], in this case), just out of morbid curiosity.”

Secara umum sebenarnya Linus tidak serta merta menolak atau menerima. Hal ini mungkin perlu kita cermati pada release kernel Linux ke depan. Apakah akan diterima atau tidak ? Keputusan tetap di tangan Linus Torvalds.
