Linus Torvalds in sweary rant about punctuation in kernel comments


Poor Linus...

One particularly well-informed, intelligent, and THINKING expert has posited that the recent rash of Linux-OS sh*t, as best exemplified by the abortion known as Ubuntu 16.04, is likely heralding the end of any hopes of--and indeed, even the death of--Linux on the desktop. This comedy by Linus Torvalds does nothing to make one feel good about being at odds with this prognostication.

"Besides a mathematical inclination, an exceptionally good mastery of one's native tongue is the most vital asset of a competent programmer."--Edsger Djikstra
