Where I can rant and whine on Linus Torvals?

I need to shake Linus to make him include kernel support for multiple mouses and multiple keyboards.
We have today multiple monitor. That way you can use two monitors, but I need to give the second monitor to other people, give them the second keyboard and mouse, and have many users on one machine.
I can do that today, only in windows, using BetWin. But I can´t make it in Linux, and kernel developpers are guilty.
I just would love to stalk kernel developpers, and cry "do THAT. DO THAT".
Microsoft do not want to do it, because it would make for less OS licenses sold.
If you have little money, you can pirate Windows XX, but you cannot pirate hardware. So Linux being free is not a massive real world money saving, but supporting many users on one computer (in the real world, not for deep hacker geeks) would make linux a deep money saving choice... And Microsoft can´t match it.
