I would just like to point out that I completely understand why Torvalds might actually want to change himself in a way, and I can respect that, but at the same time I highly doubtful this CoC and his submission came naturally.
My problem isn’t with him. He’s human. My problem is with the environment that has been caused by the Code of Conduct and specifically by Coraline Ada who probably helped construct this monster making sure it was all inclusive rather than something that everyone can back. Personally, as someone pointed out in the change of comments, I agree most with Fedoras CoC and think it would make a far better substitute.
But anyway, after 6 years I think it’s time I switch. I think the year of the Linux desktop is quickly approaching and as that happens at a faster rate, more people are bound to switch to the project and likewise more drama is to be had.
I don’t want any of it. I don’t want to be a “White Nazi” because I believe that we can all work together without having to speak for everyone on their own terms. That’s not how healthy relationships with others work.
But back on point. Tonight I will be installing OpenBSD on my laptop. I’ll update everyone with my initial impressions then and use this thread as a blog.
