There's a controversy raging among Linux developers about abusive language allegedly used by Linux Torvalds and other Linux developers on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. Sarah Sharp, an Intel Linux developer, commented about it in a post on the LKML. Here's Sarah Sharp's post on the LKML (I've included Linus' response later in the article). Strangely enough, she uses an f-bomb in her own message. This would seem to go against the idea of a more professional sort of interaction on that mailing list.
