Linux Legend Loves Some Windows 7

Why would Linus Torvalds, the man behind the Linux kernel, be giving a big thumbs up in front of a Japanese Windows 7 booth?

Maybe he's just a laid back guy. Maybe the copies are pirated. Maybe it's because there is a shitload of copies and only like one appears to have been sold. Actually, Microsoft tried to spoil the Japan Linux Symposium by setting up a booth across the street. Obviously, Torvalds was amused. [Picasa via Engadget]
