That is the other thing. Some physicist did an estimation of the most efficient way to do massively parallel computations, including node speed, communications peed, interconnect length, etc. Turns out the human brain is pretty much optimal in this universe, everything larger or with faster nodes or the like will be performing worse. So it is entirely possible, that human intelligence (such as it is in the average case) is really the best possible.

Well, maybe he just realizes that it is unlikely we will get AI like that any time soon and probably never. If you follow the research in that area for a few decades, that is the conclusion you come to. AI research over-promises and under-delivers like no other field. (Apologies to the honest folks in there, but you are not those visible to the general public.)

At this time, that is doubtful. Initially, yes, but remember that he does the Kernel, not the user-space and it shows. (The user-space was and is mostly GNU, not Linux.) True, he does the kernel rather well, and I have no doubt systemd would never have had any chance as a kernel-module or the like, but really, once you reach user-space, Linus becomes an advanced user who is, for example, missing large installation system administration experience.

People have reported corrupt log files. The result is all the data is unrecoverable. The complaints have been answered 'as designed'.

That may be intentional. In fact they confirm it is. What better way for an attacker to cover his tracks after a successful break-in then being able to credibly corrupt the logs.

When things are right, it works as intended. When things are bad, it can go far off the rails.

The hallmark of a system that has gotten far more complex than it has any business being. I foresee that the standard answer to Linux system problems will be to "reinstall". I think I have heard that utterly primitive and anti-intellectual advice somewhere else before...

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
