Torvalds Smashes the Fedora Project, Calls Them Stupid

Filed under

Linus Torvalds posted a very simple and direct message on Google+ addressed to the Fedora people. What followed next involved accusations and various veiled insults.

The father of Linux had a very simple question: how come the Fedora developers were not regenerating the distribution images with newer kernels and packages?
