Mitt Romney attracted the ire of nearly everybody when he recently suggested that passengers on board of airplanes should be able to open the windows when in an emergency. It’s not clear whether he said that as a joke or was it a serious suggestion. However, Linus Torvalds, father of Linux, has dished out a rather caustic reaction to this.


Linus Torvalds on Mitt Romney

Posting from his Google+ account, Torvalds stated, “He really seems to be a f***ing moron”, referring to Mitt Romney. This is not the first time Torvalds has criticized a political figure. In the past, he has termed Romney’s religion, Mormonism’ as ‘bats**t crazy.’

Commenting on Torvalds recent update, while many have supported his right to free speech and political belief, some have been a tad bit critical. Specifically, in the wider arena of the programming world, many have expressed surprise that while Linux community stands for rationality and logical problem-solving, such emotional outbursts are rather unexpected.

For instance, an IT professional from San Diego, David Stilson, said, “I am surprised to see all of these visceral attacks on Romney and each other. When did all the Linux nerds lose their logical approach to problem solving? People install Linux in part due to the fact that they are joining a community of supportive users. If you were new to Linux would you install it after reading these posts?”

The above argument seems to hold some weight but Torvalds has dismissed such criticism. According to him, one shouldn’t be held back by the fear of being “politically correct” (or the opposite) to speak out his heart.
