Wow! Linus apologized and wants to change:
“My flippant attacks in emails have been
both unprofessional and uncalled for. Especially at times when I made
it personal. (…) I know now this was not OK and I am truly sorry.”

@nielsk It sounds like an intervention. I would love to have been a fly on the wall for this!
"This week people in our community confronted me about my lifetime of
not understanding emotions."

@nielsk Holy crap 👏👏👏

I had totally written him off as yet another jerky tech bro. Here's hoping things improve on lkml!

@nielsk Amazing man, to apologize and communicate he wants to try and change...
