I fully understand the face-to-face issue. But Linus has been developing the kernel and doing what he does without needing to be in a particular physical location for over a decade.
If he needs to be in Portland for face-to-face are we soon going to hear of announcements about other luminaries moving here? Marcello, Andrew, Alan, Erik, Peter, et.al.?
Think not. I don't think that's the issue with Linus' move at all.
