Sigh. Your reading skills aren't very good either. This wasn't a BITGOD rant at all.
The bit you quote above refers to the fact that no one cares about new O(perating)S(ystem) projects that aren't Linux (or *BSD obviously).
People say "why bother when we've got Linux?" or "you should be spending your energy helping Linux instead" -- two stupid sentiments for fairly obvious reasons. If those attitudes had prevailed 10 years ago, there would be no Linux. See?
