Linux Is Dumb

I want to know what stupid fucker decided that the standard tab width for linux kernel code would be 8 spaces. I can understand the 80 character limit, the spacing for *, the braces style, and all the other crap required to conform to their style. Seriously, does Linus Torvald program with 8 width tabs? Once you’ve indented a few times for functions or nested ifs, it’s literally impossible to write a line of code without breaking it into multiple lines, making it twice as hard to read.

This pisses me off so much.
