Linux During the roundtable discussion at LinuxCon this year, Linus Torvalds made some pretty harsh remarks about the current state of the Linux kernel, calling it "huge and bloated", and that there is no plan in sight to solve the problem. At the same time, he also explained that he is very happy with the current development process of the kernel, and that his job has become much easier.

You didn't understand my point, my point is that Theo de Raadt didn't wrote OpenBSD from scratch, instead, he forked the NetBSD code base.

Dude, you should learn history. Theo is one of the founder of NetBSD. It's his baby, he wrote it. The name NetBSD even came from him.

So he wrote the kernel (at least a part as Linus for linux...). What is your argument now ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theo_de_Raadt

The NetBSD project was founded in 1993 by Chris Demetriou, Adam Glass, Charles Hannum, and de Raadt.

Because of the importance of networks such as the Internet in the distributed, collaborative nature of its development, de Raadt suggested the name "NetBSD", which the three other founders agreed upon.
