Crazies: Linux w/o Ethernet, Multi-Monitor, Multi-User

It seems the crazies are back to invading the Linux kernel mailing list and/or have expanded their trolling cult. After it was proposed in August that Linux doesn't need x86-32 support and Linux doesn't need keyboard support, the latest proposal is to drop support for Ethernet, multi-monitor, multiple user accounts, and no more optical drive support.

Linux Kernel Proposal For Dropping Keyboard Support

It seems to be the season for trolling the Linux kernel mailing list with idiotic statements. After it was proposed a few days ago that the Linux kernel drop support for x86 32-bit, today's entertainment comes in the form of a Linux user seeking to have keyboard support as "obsolete input device support" from the Linux kernel tree.
