SubjectRe: Linux needs new leadership.
I nominate a committee of three composed of:

1. My wife - who knows how to run the world better than anyone else, and
will tell you so.

2. My daughter - who knows teenage boys (the next generation of hackers)
better than anyone else and will tell you so.

3. My son - who is God's gift to computing, and will tell you so.
