Golly! Linux Code Patched to Replace F-Bombs in Comments With 'Hugs'

A Linux developer has released a kernel patch that edits comments to replace uses of the F-word with "hugs."

The patches, released Friday by Jarkko Sakkinen, who works at Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC), are designed to put the Linux kernel in compliance with the Linux Foundation 's recently enacted Code of Conduct. The code bans, among other things, "abusive, offensive or degrading language."

Changes include: "Only Sun can take such nice parts and hug up the programming interface like this" and "This card is hugging hot."
Hugging huggocks!

That kind of garbage doesn't belong in the kernel.
I am command line illiterate. :confused:
