Linus Torvalds actually says the ‘fuck you, Nvidia’ word ! Yay !!!! Lol

A question was posed to Linus Torvald about NVidia and his response was a little unexpected:

Linus Torvalds isn’t someone you’d accuse of excessive diplomacy and his answer to a question about Nvidia’s lack of support for Linux with its Optimus technology has been far from compromising. When posed with that query during a Q&A session at Aalto University in Finland, Torvalds begins by identifying Nvidia as “the single worst company we’ve ever dealt with” and goes on to give his assessment of its actions with a resolute “fuck you” and an accompanying middle finger gesture to the camera.

Linus did go on and explain what he meant. This is a good video to see for its other merits but the moment in question kicks off at 49:30.
