Linus Torvalds to Nvidia: F**k you

Linux creator says graphics vendor is ‘the single worst company we’ve ever dealt with’
Publish date:

Linus Torvalds has literally flipped the bird at Nvidia due to the graphics vendor’s lack of support for Linux.

Speaking at the Aalto Centre for Entrepreneurship, the Linux creator was asked for his opinion on the lack of Linux support on Nvidia components.

“I know exactly what you’re talking about,” answered Torvalds. “I’m very happy to say that it’s the exception rather than the rule and I’m also very happy to point out that Nvidia has been one of the worst trouble spots we’ve had with hardware manufacturers.

“That is really sad because Nvidia has tried to sell a lot of chips in to the Android market and Nvidia has been the single worst company we’ve ever dealt with, so Nvidia: F**k you!”
