When Linus Torvalds curses, people listen [CARTOON]

Linux’s creator goes on another epic rant


Linus Torvalds is sitting in a booth at a diner looking at a plate of food, saying 'You call these eggs f*@#ing over-easy?!' A man in the booth next to him tells a waitress 'I'll have what Linus Torvalds is cursing.'

Linus Torvalds doesn't suffer fools, bad code or improperly prepared eggs gladly

Fun tech news tidbit of the week came courtesy of the one and only Linus Torvalds, legendary creator of Linux and Git - and legendary potty-mouthed ranter. Never one to shy away from sharing his feeling, Torvalds found a bug in a recent release of the GCC compiler and while his formal bug report was perfectly professional and SFW, his email about it to the Linux kernel mailing list was a little more loosey goosey, not to mention R-rated. Torvalds, as you probably know, is famous for his rants about things that bug him in the tech world. One can only imagine what he’s like when something bugs him in everyday life.

I’m off for a few days of R&R. Have a great weekend!
