Systemd Creator Says Linux Community Is Rotten, Points at Linus Torvalds as the Source

The creator of systemd, Lennart Poettering, had some very harsh words to say about the Linux community and about one of its role models, Linus Torvalds.

It might seem that the Linux community in its entirety is all about rainbows and bunnies, but the truth is that it’s made up of regular people and the likes. Most of the other communities are formed in this way and Linux is no exception. The problem is that Linus is pegged as one of the people responsible by Lennart Poettering.

There has been some small friction between the two projects, Linux and systemd, but nothing that would indicate that something was amiss. In fact, when asked what he thought about systemd, just a couple of weeks ago, Linus Torvalds was actually very tactful about it.

  1. Lennart’s critique was not about Linus’ opionon about systemd, but the way he sometimes talk to others. This is a scheme for how some people who don’t get it correct start using this type of talking and even worse one to flame around, and one of the main targets is Lennart. That was his point.
