Linus are taking a break, and he will hopefully come back as a less horrible person.
It is because of him and people like him that I have never gotten into contributing on any kind of Open Source projects. My impression is that stuff have improved a lot since I had the time to do this, and Codes of Conducts seems to have improved stuff a lot.
What I hope for is that Linus, and people like him either change or get lost. Because people that are angry at you because you fucked up something trivial on some code you fixed on your free time fore free should not be celebrated.
