Just a question here: do you happen to know a lot about TLBs, costs associated with invalidating those tables, and all the other related memory management issues? If not then on what basis are you calling him a "dumbass"? Just wondering...

I suppose by the fact that the "incompetent idiots" (i.e. the FreeBSD and Mach people) are turning out software that rivals his own. If they were so incompetent and if Linus were so superior in his knowledge why isn't Linux (the kernel) way ahead?

Well, atleast Linus himself doesn't do any kernel related coding anymore, hasn't been doing quite some time actually. And maybe Linux just has gotten to a point that even he doesn't really know how to squeeze much more performance out of it?

Well, considering that Mach and FreeBSD are different products, lumping them together like that would make me consider him at least a little bit of a dumbass
