One of the main SJWs that work at Intel is already dogwhistling for Ted Tso to be removed from the TAB.

You can never compromise with SJWs and can never apologize to them.

So the story is real?

Or merely sort of realish?

It will be interesting to see how that pans out: lots of smart people with big egos. :mrgreen:

After Years of Abusive E-mails, the Creator of Linux Steps Aside
The e-mails of the celebrated programmer Linus Torvalds land like thunderbolts from on high onto public lists, full of invective, insults, and demeaning language. “Please just kill yourself now. The world will be a better place,” he wrote in one. “Guys, this is not a dick-sucking contest,” he observed in another. “SHUT THE FUCK UP!” he began in a third.

Torvalds has publicly posted thousands of scathing messages targeting programmers who submit what he deems flawed code to the Linux computer-operating-system kernel, which he brought to life more than twenty-five years ago and now administers as a collaborative, open-source project. Today, the Linux kernel is famous, running the enormous computers of Google, PayPal, Amazon, and eBay, and the two billion mobile phones using the Android operating system. Torvalds, though, retains final say over each precious line of code, just as he did when he first started working on the system as a graduate student at the University of Helsinki. For years, he has been known as Linux’s “benevolent dictator for life.
Sounds like Linus 'does not suffer fools gladly' and some SJW's fe-fe's are hurt over it...
...
Linux’s élite developers, who are overwhelmingly male, tend to share their leader’s aggressive self-confidence. There are very few women among the most prolific contributors, though the foundation and researchers estimate that roughly ten per cent of all Linux coders are women. “Everyone in tech knows about it, but Linus gets a pass,” Megan Squire, a computer-science professor at Elon University, told me, referring to Torvalds’s abusive behavior. “He’s built up this cult of personality, this cult of importance.”
FYI here is a long-winded rant from someone who has been associated for a while...
primarily directed at this article....warning it IS long winded...
Then Skank Of America could start in...

I tried watching it for about a minute. Too much spleen-venting, not enough getting to the fucking point.

This is the poster-child for Linus' "abusive tone". If you can't take this, you can't play high school fucking football. It was 2012.

And he's goddamn right. You should have been aborted if you ever thought a serialized 1 byte read was a good fucking idea.
