Linus Torvalds pens vintage 'f*cking' rant at kernel dev's 'utter BS'

With these articles (apart from the obvious click-baitery) I smell a case of difference in European/USAian conversation style. For me (note my handle) it seemed always strange how super-duper-extra polite the US style is. I have worked in a company that transited to US ownership. Let's just say a LOT had to be learned on both sides...

The wording Linus uses may be totally verboten from the US perspective (@left-pondians: IS IT?). It just isn't from the European perspective.
