Why I Love Linus Torvalds #43

Way to be like, “The format and device didn’t work right, so I hacked together a solution in my free time…”

And what I really respect is that he just did it. If RMS was in that situation he would’ve written several a letter of complaint to the company involved where he railed against how restrictive and restricted they are and how they need to shrug off the shackles of proprietary hardware and frolic in the leafy meadow of Software Freedom, or whatever. And then he would’ve made a webpage saying how horrible the company was, maybe with templates based on the letter he wrote that the general public could fill out and mail to companies that deserved them. I’m not making this up. At all. OK?

Moral of the story: Be a hacker, not a warmonger.
