Linux "I was in a coffee shop in Portland, Oregon and happened to spot Linus Torvalds sitting alone at a window table. I asked the creator of the Linux operating system and the Git source code control system if I could join him. Over the next fifteen minutes we talked about programming and programmers." Editor's Note: We've realized it's unclear whether this is a satirical interview or not. We don't know, so YMMV.

I know the article is marked as "satire", but other than that is appears completely sincere - there is nothing even remotely funny about it.

Perhaps, but there's more than a grain of truth to his comments about Git and whatever happens to be flavour of the month in terms of programming languages.
