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.

I'm curious, which Linux kernel version did you review?

While it's still huge, my current working copy is ~400MB..which is quite a bit smaller than 700MB.

Well, it was the most recent stable branch of 2.6.x, but I currently have no patience to redownload it to paste the actual evidence.
