(No, this isn't about the Linus' Tech Talk video on git).
The nice thing working on KDE project is because Linus likes KDE. Thus, it is not (so) surprising (he used to help with bugs, e.g. #27340) to see Linus himself writing something (read: sending some "enlightment") to kde-core-devel, again on the topic of git:
Centralized _works_. It's just *inferior*.
I'd like to see a ThinkGeek shirt with that quote.
