I don't know what point you tried to make there, but being an amateur onlyQuote:> Well, my version must be *ed. It's only happened since this new kernel.

implies not being paid. Which in the case of Linus, is correct. He does not
get paid for his work on the kernel.
You should not that neither this term nor the term 'professional' give any
hint about the expertise of the person being described. One can be an
amateur or professional and be expert or inexperienced. Generally an amateur
is the more expert (provided he isn't just starting out), because he is
doing what he loves. It is a mistake to think that throwing money at an
employee makes him expert.
