"Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst disagreed with Linus Torvalds' contention that
Linux has become bloated....

"So who's right here? Whitehurst has a point. Won't every operating system
have virtualization capabilities layered in? Isn't it the normal course of
business to add features?

"However, Torvalds may be onto something too. He may be early with his bloat
warning, but at some point Linux will have more features than people
actually want. Bloated operating systems are like a lot of other things: It's
hard to find the tipping point, but you know bloat when you see it."
