"Nobody who had a boss like Linus would enjoy it."

I guess it depends on how thin-skinned you are. I've worked for talented but grumpy people whom I have liked and respected. In those cases it was obvious that any swearing wasn't intended as a personal attack, rather an expression of frustration when things weren't going as well as they should.

Are most people really so sensitive to perceived criticism that they can't tell the difference?
