    The entire linux ecosystem is going to crash and burn the moment this dude dies

      I'm actually very concerned about this. He's in his 50s, even if the dude lives to 90 how much longer is he going to be working on Linux? He can't just do this till he dies! And even if he does, do we want 75 year old Torvalds in charge? The time when this will be relevant is coming sooner than anyone expects.

        linux ecosystem seems to be the most practical out of open source systems. It is messy but mostly you can intall it and hardware works*. I don't want to be confined to choice between microshit and itoddler. bsd's say that they have neat and usefull fetures but hardware compatibility seems spoty at best and they are not free from gay political shit. I just want an os that mostly works and there is a chance it doesn't spy on me.
        If linux goes to shit I hope I will have an alternative.

          Anon it doesn't matter when they spy via hardware exploits.
          No amount of FOSS drivers nor FOSS software saves you from glowies.
          Air-gaping(without disabling wifi in your proximity) is dead, all transparent to the HLOS.

            I'm anticipating some kind of whistleblower to talk about remote hardware marking.
            (You mark the hardware via a remote command of somekind(could also be an exploit or closed firmware issue) and it just enables anti-features, stored in BIOS storage area or as a eFUSE on various ICs).

        This. Linus is too old. We need young leadership that will push Linux towards safety of Rust.

          Why Rust and not ATS?

          My question is, why did the bad patch make it all the way to Linus? Are there incompetent subsystem maintainers? Is he still the maintainer for this part of the tree?

          > young
          I wonder why they stopped publishing linux internal books.

        The question is whether there will even be a new leader. Linus stepping down would be a huge opportunity for companies to step in and "commercialize" the project.

        This is why I'm glad the BSDs exist. I don't use them, but at least we have a lifeboat.

          >NetBSD
          potentially a lifeboat candidate, though unlikely.
          >FreeBSD
          most likely lifeboat candidate, though poorly developed and led by itoddlers.
          >OpenBSD
          same problem as Linux, what happens if Theo dies?
          >DragonFlyBSD
          same problem as Linux, what happens if Matthew dies?

          all in all, the options are terrible on this front here too. Of the bunch, I'd vote for NetBSD, but its still shit.

            Someone should fork a bsd and re-license it under GPL and make it good.

        I bet he will, what else will he do in his spare time. Though in his old age he'll probably be more of a symbolic leader giving yeas or nays to decisions described to him, rather than actually participating in the decision making process.

      linus could go on a murderous and raping rampage throughout finland and nothing would happen. world has become dependent on the unix replacement. thankfully it's all open source so it doesn't fricking matter in the end. people will just continue working on it no matter who comes or goes, including linus himself.

    This is why Microsoft is a trillion dollar company, while Linux is a hobbyist OS where the community gets its kicks from screaming at each other over email. Cringe.
