"As in largest contributions to the art. Ever heard of DICE? How about OpenSSH? Either of them rival Bill Joy, Eric Allman, or Marshall Kirk McKusick for the effect they've had."

Huh, not really. Bill Joy wrote a lot of BSD utilities HIMSELF. The only thing that Theo has in common with Joy is that they both lack human skills.

I don't doubt Theo is a talented programmer, problem is that there are plenty of talented programmers out there... thus he is by no means an authority on computer architecture.
