Guys, credit us with *some* intelligence...
(Well, maybe not all of us)

Of course it's an April Fool. Do you really think that Linus would choose
to quit Linux development at midnight on April Fools' Day?

Of course, I have no proof, but I'd be willing to bet a crisp tenner on

As to whether it's posted by Linus or a spoof, I won't comment...

And spaghetti *does* grow on trees.
