No, I'm not saying he's just sore at his old employer. I'm saying there's a fairly good chance he probably had some say in thing X or thing Y while there, especially given how long he's been involved in the Linux kernel. And yeah, a distro consists of a lot more than just a kernel, but if the kernel developers don't like a distro, they're the ones who are most likely to put pressure on the underlying devs to do something about whatever is broken or badly designed.--
