Monday, June 25, 2012 After Linus Benedict Torvalds, the Linux creator gave a middle finger to NVIDIA, the latter mentioned that they would take Linux more seriously. Stephen Warren, an NVIDIA employee sent out a mailer to the Kernel Summit mailing list asking for a different approach for better support towards Linux.

While speaking at an event in front of students on 14 June at the Aalto University Center for Entrepreneurship in Otaniemi, Finland, Linus Torvalds unexpectedly made a middle finger gesture when a girl in the audience asked him about NVIDIA graphics card driver support for Linux, since she faced some difficulty with her laptop that was running NVIDIA Optimus Technology.

linus torvalds fuck you, ndivia reaction,




Torvalds replied,“I know exactly what you’re talking about and I’m happy to say that it’s the exception rather than the rule. I’m also happy to very publicly point out that NVIDIA has been one of the worst trouble spots we’ve had with hardware manufacturers. And that is really sad because NVIDIA tries to sell chips — a lot of chips — into the Android market and NVIDIA has been the single worst company we’ve every dealt with. So, NVIDIA, f**k you!”

“In a Google+ comment, Linus noted that we have mainly been contributing patches for Tegra SoC infra-structure details. I'm curious what other areas people might expect me/NVIDIA to contribute to. I assume the issue is mainly the lack of open support for the graphics-related parts of our HW, but perhaps there's some expectation that we'd also start helping out some core area of the kernel too? Would that kind of thing help our image even if we didn't open up our HW?” Warren mentioned in an online report.
