Wonder how he really feels?
Quote:
Linus Torvalds gets graphic about his feelings toward Nvidia. Uses a few choice words to vent his anger about Nvidia's lack of Linux support.

Evidently, he feels that Nvidia should get forked? And digitally re-mastered...

Thanks for the video link (cut past the guy waffling at the beginning . . .)

I was reminded of Meego and Tizen from the last questioner
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tizen

There was some interesting points for example how Linus largely disagrees with Stallmans puritan stance on working in the world with commercial interests. That is pragmatic. He also approves of projects like the Raspberry P.I. (as he calls it) Cool
