The idea to write a post regarding the funny Linus' quotes came into my mind after I came across this wiki page. So, let me suggest TOP 10 list of his quotes:
Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect.
Only wimps use tape backup: _real_ men just upload their important stuff on ftp, and let the rest of the world mirror it
Software is like sex; it’s better when it’s free.
Is "I hope you all die a painful death" too strong?
Most days I wake up thinking I'm the luckiest bastard alive.
Talk is cheap. Show me the code.
I'm a bastard. I have absolutely no clue why people can ever think otherwise. Yet they do. People think I'm a nice guy, and the fact is that I'm a scheming, conniving bastard who doesn't care for any hurt feelings or lost hours of work, if it just results in what I consider to be a better system. And I'm not just saying that. I'm really not a very nice person. I can say "I don't care" with a straight face, and really mean it.
Those that can, do. Those that can't, complain.
You see. I don't think any new thoughts. I think thoughts that other people have thought, and I rearrange them. But Sara, she thinks thoughts that never were before.
Alternative versions of TOP 10 are welcome here!
