Linux "I was in a coffee shop in Portland, Oregon and happened to spot Linus Torvalds sitting alone at a window table. I asked the creator of the Linux operating system and the Git source code control system if I could join him. Over the next fifteen minutes we talked about programming and programmers." Editor's Note: We've realized it's unclear whether this is a satirical interview or not. We don't know, so YMMV.

You're the one that has fallen for his bullshit.

Never broke interfaces from day one? The userspace driver API didn't exist until 2007. So yes they were breaking everything from day one and they will still break in-tree drivers if they feel like it.

Linus is just giving some p.r. speak there. The truth is that Linux is his pet and he will break whatever he wants.

Maybe I will have to blog about this because everyone seems to have fallen for that response to Miguel's blog.
