Torvalds Redefines Skepticism to Mean Laziness

I read an interesting article on news.com yesterday where Linus Torvalds proclaimed that Solaris x86 is a "Joke." It's difficult to counter this type of arrogance, especially when it's rooted in laziness.

Torvalds states that " Solaris/x86 is a joke, last I heard. (It has) very little support for any kind of strange hardware..." Let's take a look at the laziness this statement displays. "Last I heard"? He can't be bothered to check this out himself? He allows others to form his opinions for him? Amazing.
Sure he's busy, but he should take the time to find out what's going on with Solaris before speaking about it publically.
