The fact that you don't know what does and does not constitute the kernel is a tribute to your cluelessness. Extra points for not knowing that Linus always openly acknowleges that he doesn't do most of the work but still gets most of the credit. Linus is actually a very humble guy. He just doesn't suffer fools well, which explains your butthurt completely, of course.

Please point me to the fine print that requires me to treat incompetent people who waste my time and cause others to falsely accuse me of creating code that crashes their computer in any other manner. As far as I am concerened, Linus was far too nice.

You joke, I know, but they already are. You need only look at the posts here whining about his "tirade" and claiming he is "unprofessional" and questioning why anyone would develop the kernel to see exactly who the sloths are and see them demanding he change his behaviour to cosign their sloth.

To all of those people, please, please , please do the world a favor and change careers. Seriously. If you can't see why he is 100% right to be outraged at all the time wasted and all the problems caused by the sloth it takes to make this kind of incompetent mistake, just accept the fact that as a software developer you'd make a great janitor and change careers. Let the people who are qualified to do software development work, and accept that you were sold a bill of goods when you were told that computers were where the money was at, and that anyone - even you - could do it. It takes real skills and commitment, and you are destroying the industry with your sub-subpar skills and lack of attention to detail.

Because every truly competent developer agrrees with him. We all hate incompetence, and Linus speaks for us all when he lays in to some incompetent for sullying the gene pool of software developers everywhere. Linus' approach has a truly wonderful effect. The incompetent people run away crying "Ohh Noze! He was mean to me! Doesn't he know that I have a right to be incompetent and still be treated with kid gloves??!!!". The competent people say "Thank you Linus for saying what we all wanted to say!" and continue to develop. I have no idea if the effect of his tirades is intentional, but make no mistake about it. It is not merely acceptable. It is ideal.

You'll note that math has been around for thousands of years. It is the process of doing it with a computer that is recent. By your argument, there's nothing patentable about computers because they just do the same thing that has been done for thousands of years, but just a little differently.

"Pretty much the only sensible answer in this discussion so far - and based upon the number of people (trolls? shills?) saying that the gear should be used for mining crypto-currency, I could probably make a small fortune as a security consultant looking for abusive sysadmins wasting company assets for dubious gains. Let's not forget, your employer is moving to the cloud either because they do not see value in what you provide, or they want you focusing on more strategic initiatives."

So those are the only two choices then? You probably could make a small fortune as a security consultant looking for abusive sysadmins wasting company assets for dubious gains. All you'd have to do is throw around a few buzz words and use some marketing speak to the same idiots that made the decision to "move to the cloud". That being said, let us not confuse "making a fortune" with "being competent".*

Thank you! I totally appreciate your helping me to understand the English language! Up until now I thought that, when people said there is no speed limit on the Autobahn, it meant that one could go as fast as the car would go. Now, thanks to the combination of your brilliance and eloquence, I now understand that the laws of physics cesase to exist on the Autobahn! I now also understand that every phone company is commiting fraud by claiming that their networks are capable of infinite frigging bandwidth! Either that, or you are an idiot.

Yeah. They don't have an "advertising building". If you don't like Bose, that's fine, but don't spread misinformation. It makes you look like the moron you clearly are. And for the record, it isn't their building that is impressive. It is their process. I am not some guy who got a ten minute tour of their building. I worked in their DAE department. I can assure you that they have a very and uncharacteristically strong focus on quality.

True though that may be, any FOSS project that doesn't support Linux is useless for the vast majority. If you use Windows then you are, by definition, not interested in FOSS, regardless of the contemporry M$ spin. There are many good FOSS projects with Windows ports, but if you want to use Windows and you don't want them you are basically screwed since FOSS relies on a community of competent developers, and by definition, "Windows only" developers that are competent are virtually non-existent.

"Oh, awesome, smashing riposte. It's not like we were discussing Bose as related to their speakers as related to Beats, eh? "

That is correct. It is not like we were discussing Bose as related to their speakers as related to Beats. The suit is about their active noise cancellation. Evidently you don't know what that means. This is, of course, in direct congruence to your cluelessness in everything you have written.
