You don’t have to be a Linux user, or even a nerd, to love Linus Torvalds. His arrogant and irreverant sense of humor draws scores of views, shares and upvotes on almost anything he says online.
He cares very little about what others think, and will publicly lambaste anyone he deems deserving. Which to be honest, appears to be most people.
From an abundant smorgasbord, we’ve chosen 14 of our favorite smackdowns from King Linus.

In response to negative comments about the Linux penguin logo, Linus had this to say to the ‘penguin-haters’:
Linux now has a logo thanks to the artistic talents of Larry Ewing, and one version (the “pretty” version) is included with the kernel.

They’d be a lot more careful about what they say if they had…
In short, at least give the penguin a fair viewing. If you still don’t like it that’s ok: that’s why I’m boss. I simply know better than you do.
