I agree with Linus both on the matter and on the tone BUT
- he is not a physician: technically speaking his words on the topic should be taken as those of the random guy on the street¹
- he called "idiotic" someone he doesn't agree with: how will the Linux Foundation TAB react to this?
AFAIK they should punish him for being unwelcoming, but he is also right and they do not want to be associated with anti-vax.
¹ indeed he also said something most family physicians who actually work with people in their territory would not agree with: the drop in the deaths rate from covid right now is largely due to the summer not the vaccines, in the winter we will see if it worked for real (as I think and hope)
