Linus Torvalds is an exceptional low-level hacker (one of the 6% most active C users) who loves pushing code. Linus is a fulltime hacker who works best in the morning (around 11 am).

Linus's developer personality is very similar to Rafael J. Wysocki's but Rafael speaks more languages. There is also an uncanny similarity between Linus's activity stream and those of davshao, DragonFly BSD Synchronization Bot, Anup Patel, and Fatima Broom.

It seems like Linus is—or should be—friends with Arthur Maciejewicz. With this in mind, it's worth noting that Arthur submits pull requests more frequently. There is also an obvious connection between Linus and ZhuZhengyi, ZetaNeta, zenoway, and Diego Licea.

Statistics

The two following graphs show Linus Torvalds's average weekly and daily schedules. These charts give significant insight into Linus's character as a developer. The colors in the charts indicate the fraction of events that are pushes, new repos or branches, pull requests, issue comments, and new issues.

Note: an attempt has been made to show these plots in in the correct timezone (based on Linus's location listed on their GitHub profile) but this procedure is imperfect at best.

We already know that Linus loves pushing code but the following chart sheds some light onto what Linus does with their open source time. In the full event stream analyzed for this report, there are a total of 1031 events recorded for Linus. The colors in the pie chart below indicate the number of events that are pushes, new repos or branches, pull requests, issue comments, and new issues.

All of Linus's activity seems to be associated with repositories in C. Maybe it's time to branch out a bit.
