netbuzz writes: "Last night Linux creator Linus Torvalds took to his Google+ page and called Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney “a f***ing moron.” Torvalds’ stated reason? Romney’s much-ridiculed suggestion that air passengers would be safer in emergencies if aircraft windows could be opened (a suggestion which some, including Snopes.com, have taken as a joke). Torvalds also recently called Mormonism, Romney’s religion, “bats**t crazy.” Is this just Linus being Linus? Or does such outspokenness on non-technical matters reflect poorly on the Linux community that Torvalds leads?"
Computers are unreliable, but humans are even more unreliable.
Any system which depends on human reliability is unreliable.
