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.

Thom, you should update the post to mention it is a joke.

The article on
http://typicalprogrammer.com/?p=143
has the tag "Satire"

It's not obvious Linus didn't actually say that.

I agree. It took reading the comments section for me to notice that there was a Satire tag. The author of the article should have better indicated it was a parody.

Agreed, but...a satirical treatment of or parody of what?
