True indeed, but wonder what the Intel "f*ckers" on the Linux Foundation Board of Directors and Technical Advisory Board think of his comments?

It's also worth noting that the same "f*ckers" are "Platinum" donors, paying a large part of his exhorbitant salary and big contributors of code to Linux kernel.
