Putting on my tin-foil hat, it almost seems like there is a coordinated program to backdoor security products, and attribute them to a 'mistake'. But that's just me being paranoid.
speaking of which, did you ever check your tin-foil hat for backdoors?
Sounds like vaporware. Where would it's power come from?
Why, from the vapor of course!
In 1980, Stallman and some other hackers at the AI Lab were refused access to the source code for the software of a newly installed laser printer, the Xerox 9700. Stallman had modified the software for the Lab's previous laser printer (the XGP, Xerographic Printer), so it electronically messaged a user when the person's job was printed, and would message all logged-in users waiting for print jobs if the printer was jammed. Not being able to add these features to the new printer was a major inconvenience, as the printer was on a different floor from most of the users. This experience convinced Stallman of people's need to be able to freely modify the software they use.

On the Internet, nobody can hear you being subtle
So what if some technically superior thing Torvalds wants to do requires being subtle? Doesn't that ever happen, or will he trade the technical superiority for being heard?
Sorry if capitalism is painful that way.
it might not affect you or me (in any negative way), but exploitation does happen. Does that mean nobody is entitled to ask for proper remuneration?
