linus's viewpoint

i think his attitude on things and the way he thinks is alot like the way i think...... well judging by this interview anyway... like for instance when he says this : Linus Torvalds: I'm a big non-believer in manual driver and kernel configuration, be it visual or not. Most of the stuff happens automatically, and we're going to make that more and more common. Things like hot-plugging a device and the driver automatically getting loaded is how things are supposed to work, none of this "device manager" stuff." i could not agree with him more..... alot of people would say i'm wussy because of the whole "simpleness" of that idea but shit.... isn't that what we all want? in a way it's complete laziness.... we dont want to configuring shit for a long ass time to make it work (to an extent.. i like to tweak madly) or fucking reboot after installing anyfuckingthing..i hate that crap and i know alot of people out there do too. Linus is a person.. dont hate him for being one... he can say what he likes.. just like we can here... he's no different
