I mean, I'm not aware of any other high-profile developer who started so many things in such a short time and doesn't maintain them anymore.
Funny that you started with Linus. Who quite explicitly developed "new thing" (git) and quickly shuffled maintenance to others.
The fact is: creation of new software and maintenance are both important but these are different skillsets. If Lennart can find good maintainers who will support his creations - then all is well. Linus is good in both creation and maintenance roles - but even does not support everything he wrote.
