that's cause linus is a greedy lintard. now that a couple people
finally use this worthless os it's his chance to make a few measly
dollars. linus is a 3rd rate gates wannabe.

if he was really worried bout protecting his retarded trademark he'd
charge a nominal fee of $1 and deny applicants he doesn't like.

his true colors finally show. he's a greedy punk like the rest of them.
