Linus pulls a (refreshing) 180 on his long history of 'flippant email attacks'  ↦

I did not see this coming. Linus Torvalds, writing to the Linux Kernel mailing list:

I need to change some of my
behavior, and I want to apologize to the people that my personal
behavior hurt and possibly drove away from kernel development

I am going to take time off and get some assistance on how to
understand people’s emotions and respond appropriately.

Introspection is hard, especially when you don’t like what you see after staring yourself in the mirror. Cheers to him for owning up to mistreating others and attempting to change. Here’s hoping he follows through. 🤞
