Yea, it's a lot better than his previous "It's a sham" statement from
1998 ;-)  I couldn't help but go looking for that old statment he made
to compare them, but I seem to have lost it.

I do remember him saying he didn't have time to deal with the LSB, but
it was more to the effect that it was a total waste of time, and would
just end up tring to mandate Red Hat RPMs and layout as the de facto
standard.  It's funny to see how he suddenly "forgot" that he said
that.  I suppose it means he's more open to it now.  If I find some time
this weekend, I'll dig around for his old quote to compare.
