Between the new GTX 600 series GPUs and its top-notch Tegra 3 mobile chips, Nvidia's been getting a lot of love from the press and consumers alike in recent months. One guy ain't so happy with the company, though: Linus Torvalds. His lack of love revolves around Nvidia's continued reluctance to show the love to the Linux operating system -- and Linus isn't afraid to express his displeasure, either with words or obscene gestures.
"Nvidia has been the single worst company we've dealt with," Linus says in the brief clip below, which is taken from a much longer talk at the Aalto Center for Entrepreneurship (ACE) in Otaniemi, Finland. (Hit this link to see the whole, interesting thing.) The tirade is kicked off by a weary user who had to jump through hoops to try and enable her laptop's Nvidia Optimus technology while running the open-source operating system.
Linus talks about the hypocrisy of Nvidia's lackluster Linux support in the light of the company's heavy forays into Android before staring directly into the camera and extending his middle finger.
"Nvidia… Fuck you!" he says, the words slowly and pointedly rolling off his tongue, just in case the gesture alone didn't get the point across.
