Linux Linus Torvalds - a classic example of the love-it-or-hate-it type of person. Brilliant programmer, of course, and the father of one of the most extraordinary software projects in the world, but sometimes, he can be utterly arrogant any annoying, yet the other moment completely sensible and utterly spot-on in his statements. CBR listed the ten best Linus Torvalds quotes.

I just took offense to the original article calling him a "Brilliant Programmer" I work on "his" kernel every day and it really is the biggest POS on the planet! You can massage anything enough it will work! It's defiantly not pretty.

You are correct in that he was in the right place at the right time... and now we are stuck with it!

Again proof that politics is more important then technical merit!
