"Nobody who had a boss like Linus would enjoy it. Anyone who was like Linus at work should be fired."

But that's just it ... Linus is NOT the boss of the kernel developers. And they are not "at work" in the conventional meaning of the phrase. Applying so-called "normal" standards to FOSS development simply doesn't work. It really is a whole new paradigm. (I shall now refrain from posting for a couple hours, in penance for using the P word.)
