LXer: Torvalds pans Apple with 'utter crap' putdown
Published at LXer:

Apple's much-touted new operating system, OS X Leopard, is in some ways worse than Windows Vista, says the founder of the Linux open source project, Linus Torvalds.

Nice to see this sort of threads - a title that covers 2% of the whole article idea, or less. In the whole story "Apple" and "utter crap" show up in one place, while most of the story is about something completely different..

Regular posters are told to use as descriptive thread titles as possible, and I think LXer should try that too.

You have touched a nerve...I sometimes get the impression that "LXer" is a robot which links anything containing the word "Linux".

It did not take long to find that the "crap" comment was directed only to the file system.

time-honored wisdom: "If it works, it's OK." I have no doubt that OS-X works just fine for many people.

The LXer threads are simply a feed - it's automatic with no human intervention. Unfortunately, headline writers have no interest in being relevant, so we occasionally get articles like this.
