Linus Torvalds Quote: “Microsoft isn’t evil, they just make really crappy operating systems.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I’ve felt strongly that the advantage of Linux is that it doesn’t have a niche or any special market, but that different individuals and companies end up pushing it in the direction they want, and as such you end up with something that is pretty balanced across the board.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “No problem is too big it can’t be run away from.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I’m sitting in my home office wearing a bathrobe. The same way I’m not going to start wearing ties, I’m also not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “Real quality means making sure that people are proud of the code they write, that they’re involved and taking it personally.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “When you hear voices in your head that tell you to shoot the pope, do you do what they say? Same thing goes for customers and managers. They are the crazy voices in your head, and you need to set them right, not just blindly do what they ask for.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I am not a visionary. I’m an engineer. I’m happy with the people who are wandering around looking at the stars but I am looking at the ground and I want to fix the pothole before I fall in.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I think one thing I do pretty well is not taking myself too seriously.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “The fact that ACPI was designed by a group of monkeys high on LSD, and is some of the worst designs in the industry obviously makes running it at any point pretty damn ugly.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “Some people have told me they don’t think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen an angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They’d be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I’m basically a very lazy person who likes to get credit for things other people actually do.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “Any program is only as good as it is useful.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I’m generally a very pragmatic person: that which works, works.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “You know, the mark of intelligence is realizing when you’re making the same mistake over and over and over again, and not hitting your head in the wall five hundred times before you understand that it’s not a clever thing to do.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “When I do programming in my free time and for my own enjoyment, I really want to have a kind of protection: knowing that when I improve a program those improvements will continue to be available to me and others in future versions of the program.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “If it is relevant there is always somebody else out there.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “In short: just say NO TO DRUGS, and maybe you won’t end up like the Hurd people.”

Linus Torvalds Quote: “No-one has ever called me a cool dude. I’m somewhere between geek and normal.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I think people can generally trust me, but they can trust me exactly because they know they don’t have to.”

Linus Torvalds Quote: “I am very happy about Android obviously. I use Android, and it’s actually made cellphones very usable.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “The thing I love about diving is the flowing feeling. I like a sport where the whole point is to move as little as humanly possible so your air supply will last longer. That’s my kind of sport. Where the amount of effort spent is absolutely minimal.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “People enjoy the interaction on the Internet, and the feeling of belonging to a group that does something interesting: that’s how some software projects are born.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “Making Linux GPL’d was definitely the best thing I ever did.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “If you start doing things because you hate others and want to screw them over, the end result is bad.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “So I would not be surprised if the globbing libraries, for example, will do NFD-mangling in order to glob “correctly”, so even programs ported from real Unix might end up getting pathnames subtly changed into NFD as part of some hot library-on-library action with UTF hackery inside.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I actually don’t believe that everybody should necessarily try to learn to code. I think it’s reasonably specialized, and nobody really expects most people to have to do it. It’s not like knowing how to read and write and do basic math.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I see myself as a technical person who chose a great project and a great way of doing that project.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “What I find most interesting is how people really have taken Linux and used it in ways and attributes and motivations that I never felt.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “In many ways, I am very happy about the whole Linux commercial market because the commercial market is doing all these things that I have absolutely zero interest in doing myself.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “Hmmm, completely a-religious – atheist. I find that people seem to think religion brings morals and appreciation of nature. I actually think it detracts from both.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I’m perfectly happy complaining, because it’s cathartic, and I’m perfectly happy arguing with people on the Internet because arguing is my favourite pastime – not programming.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “If you want an application to be portable, you don’t necessarily create an abstraction layer like a microkernel so much as you program intelligently.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I never felt that the naming issue was all that important, but I was obviously wrong, judging by how many people felt. I tell people to call it just plain Linux and nothing more.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “One of the questions I’ve always hated answering is how do people make money in open source. And I think that Caldera and Red Hat – and there are a number of other Linux companies going public – basically show that yes, you can actually make money in the open-source area.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “That’s what makes Linux so good: you put in something, and that effort multiplies. It’s a positive feedback cycle.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “I’ve been employed by the University of Helsinki, and they’ve been perfectly happy to keep me employed and doing Linux.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “To be a nemesis, you have to actively try to destroy something, don’t you? Really, I’m not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “The idea of abstracting away the one thing that must be blindingly fast, the kernel, is inherently counter productive.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “While I may not get any money from Linux, I get a huge personal satisfaction from having written something that people really enjoy using, and that people find to be the best alternative for their needs.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “There are literally several levels of SCO being wrong. And even if we were to live in that alternate universe where SCO would be right, they’d still be wrong.”

Linus Torvalds Quote: “Me trying to make a business around Linux would have been a total disaster.”
Linus Torvalds Quote: “So I decided that if the architecture is fundamentally sane enough, say it follows some basic rules like it supported paging, then I would be able to say, yes, Linux fundamentally supports that model.”
