    No, I never said anything about "amateurs".
    All of my code that is in the Linux kernel was done as an "amateur",
    including the stuff that I still do.
    Almost every kernel developer started as an "amateur" kernel programmer.
    It's only been fairly recently that people have been able to make a
    living programming the kernel.
    And I encourage "amateurs" to work on the Linux kernel.
    Bad terminology choice :)
