Posted Jun 18, 2012

Linus Torvalds, the chief architect of the Linux kernel, is not happy with Nvidia’s lack of Linux support. During a Q&A session at Aalto University in Finland, Torvalds said that Nvidia was the “the single worst company we’ve ever dealt with.” He then said “f**k you” to Nvidia and stuck his middle finger at the camera. Torvalds pointed out that Nvidia’s Tegra line of ARM chips is selling well because of Android, which is a mobile operating system built from Linux.
