Sometimes I forget how weird yet elegant Unix can be, and then Linus Torvalds writes

/* 64 processes */
fork(); fork(); fork(); fork(); fork(); fork();

@alexbuzzbee very cool that this commit reads like a textbook.

Are all commits like this? Or at least Linus's?

@marie_joseph Linux patches are supposed to have a long cover letter that explains what's being done and why.
