I don't see at as an insult sorry... it's a quote, and it still applies today.
Of course it never applied to production releases of Linux only to the
development ones... this is why there have been times when three or so versions
have been released in a day.
I also use Linux on very important servers, and have never had any problems
with it either... However, I also run development versions...
The whole Linux model is one of test a bit and then release so others can see
if it works on heaps of different hardware. Then fix the bugs and loop back
again until it is stable... then move it into the production kernels...

only less reliably --Ken Thompson
