Portrait of Linus

The Mailing List of Hell

For many years, Linus Torvalds shat on dozens of people on the Linux Kernel Mailing List due to their complete stupidity related to their garbage code or just in reply to how they maintain their software. Some of these replies are short, mild, simple and to the point. Some turn out to be long, ingenius bits of offensive critique. In keeping in touch with our archival nature, we have decided to frame some of the best ones as a means of showing respect to the person who created the system that soda, Private Void, and several others run on.
