Submission + - OS X file system bashed by Linus Torvalds

ziggyboy writes: While in Melbourne, Australia for the linux.conf.au 2008 conference and asked to comment about OS X versus Vista, Linus Torvalds made a brief remark about OS X's file system being "complete and utter crap," according to this article from the Sydney Morning Herald. He did however mentioned that OS X was a better system but in some ways much worse than Vista. He then moved on to accusing large operating system vendors of forcing users to treat updates as a cause for major celebration, "An operating system should be completely invisible," he said. "To Microsoft and Apple (it is) a way to control the whole environment ... to force people to upgrade their applications and hardware."
