You've got to hand it to Linus Torvalds, he's never been afraid to speak his mind. Even when it comes to his own baby.
Speaking yesterday at LinuxCon, he stated that the Linux kernel has become "huge and scary" and that it isn't "the streamlined, hyper-efficient kernel I envisioned when I started writing Linux."
Asked whether a solution was in the works, he commented, "I'd love to say we have a plan."
You gotta admit, the guy is honest.
Predictably, his comments have ignited discussions on several forums, including Slashdot, CNET, and OSNews.
