Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

I think Linus know that he can be a difficult person.
That is why he used git in "github". They parody themselves sometime.

You should understand soft software dev. culture though.
I find the mailing lists and discussion posting comical at tongue in the cheek.

I don't think he is more in difficult than say Bill Gates or Steve Jobs though from what I've read.

I've read some of his interviews and you realise Linus does not follow some people's attitude that Linux is beyond reproach.

It is a joke .. because Linus created GIT. A Revision Control System.

Github itself has nothing to do with Linus - however, he did create 'git', which the site is based on. And yes, there's a great quote from him about his tendency to name projects after himself... first Linux, then Git.

Linus should take care about the Git user experience, before going after Gnome (particularly the mess with git commands).

Afterall, this guy shouldn't be talking about user experience. ;)

Eh, git is no worse than any other source control system, and better than some. They're all hard to learn, and all do things slightly differently from all the others - at least git is one of the ones where you get some reward for the time spent learning it...
