Not sure how I missed this the other day, but it was the 30-year anniversary of this rather important post.

@jeffalyanak Cool, thanks for sharing! I just read that Linus also invented Git!

Quoting Linus: "I'm an egotistical bastard, and I name all my projects after myself. First 'Linux', now 'Git'".

('git' is British slang for "pig headed, think they are always correct, argumentative").

@jeffalyanak "just a hobby, won't be big and professional.."

Nice hobby project though 😁
