Not knowing how things look like on lkml, I found this quote obnoxious and flaming, although in a cleverly subtle way. In essence he is just saying that "I'm right you are wrong" or perhaps more bluntly "you are stupid". Kind of like a kid in kindergarten when others don't want to play his game.
There is an uncomfortable little factoid that is the counterargument to Hans'. He is saying that Linus & co were lucky to get this far but should now relinguish control to him (I assume) since they really don't know what they're doing. The only problem is that Linus with friends are the ones who made what Linux is today, clearly by definition it cannot have overgrown them. If Hans thinks he can make a better Linux than Linus, there is nothing that should stop him really: It's Free Software and all that you know...
I have nothing against Reiser4, it is good to have people trying to do things never done before. But there is no reason to expect that others will always adapt to your wishes.
