Linus Torvalds tells Nvidia to go forth and multiply

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Worst…company…ever


Linux creator Linus Torvalds is a rather soft spoken fellow, but it appears Nvidia managed to get under his skin.

In a recent public presentation Torvalds blasted Nvidia over its failure to deliver proper Linux drivers, calling it the single worst company he ever had the displeasure of working with. He ended his remarks with “Nvidia: F*** You!” and  proceeded to show the Green Goblin the finger on camera.

So, just as we are hearing that Nvidia is doing a great job when it comes to Windows RT drivers, it gets the finger from the Archbishop of Linux. Torvalds claims Nvidia is an exception to Linux support and that it lacks “friendliness” toward the open-source Linux community.

We asked Nvidia to comment Torvalds’ remarks and although we did not get an official response yet, but we were told that Nvidia was not amused by the F-bomb and finger. You can check out the video after the break, the Nvidia rant starts at 49 minutes plus change.
