I was never part of the community. But as probably everyone involved in for many years, I couldn't ignore the regular debate about the unfriendly atmosphere in the kernel community. You really need to have a strong character to be that self-critical, thank you Linus Torvalds for this really open mail.

@bjoern i don't want to asses something here, but just want to add that not being able to admit having done a mistake and say sorry is imho the worst weakness you can have as a human being.

@bjoern When project names are changed thus breaking other project just because of "muh feeling" I rather see an absolute madman auditing the code in a piece of software powering hardware that could kill me when broken.
