TechView: Linus Torvalds, Inventor of Linux

TV: What really pisses you off in Technology today? How and why does it make you angry?

Torvalds: I wouldn’t say it makes me angry, but if there’s something distasteful in the tech market, it’s the glorification of the most visible “leaders”.

That very much includes me, btw. I think the whole “cult of personality” is pretty disturbing, and I hate how people take me and what I say too seriously. The same goes for Jobs, Ellison, Gates, you name it.
