    "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."
