Why is that ironic?

Linus was one of the designers of GIT, apparently him and the creator of Minix do not (or did not) get along when it comes to their views on OSes.

But their views on oses have nothing to do with their views on scms...?

I have never heard or read about them not getting along. Mind pointing me to a source/reference?

Thank you in advance ;)

AFAIK the only thing they "don't get along with" is which of micro or monolithic kernels are a "better" design.

The whole thing is massively blown out of context by the press and even more so here as Git isn't even remotely related to kernel design.

It's a little like saying I'm not going to use any software nor services developed by anyone on OSNews who I've ever disagreed on. If everyone acted like that - nothing would ever get done.
