Linus Torvalds needs to shut up about Apple

Filed under

More than three years later and poor Linus still gets grief over $#!^ he said. In part, thanks to David Gewirtz’s post that time forgot referring to Linus’ comments regarding Apple’s filesystem. The post made me start thinking (always a dangerous thing to do) and I came up with the notion that Linus Torvalds needs to shut up about Apple. He should probably stick to kernel programming. Or, use his powers to take jabs at Microsoft. But, Apple is off limits, even to Linus. And, before you raise your hackles, I’m a Linux guy but I have to draw the line at pointless Apple jabs–even ones that are three years old.

First of all, Apple’s filesystem is not ‘complete and utter crap.’ It’s built on 25-year old technology that’s stood the test of time, through multiple OS versions and a change in hardware technology culminating in a now UNIX-based architecture.
