        "Linus gets mad when... we break his stuff". Yeahhhh right.. employee's got the mindset that its "company stuff and not my stuff so its ok". Wonder why the company boss is mad, LOL.

              Linus seems like a real life Michael Scott. A little crazy but also has sincere love and passion for his job and workers.

                                  I feel like they haven't had a regular boss prior, lol..
                                  Bosses have to be bosses.. that's there job, but he seems like a normal guy boss.. the best kind.

                                  But like 8:25 C'mon... it's a job.. it's not supposed to be fun, so when it IS fun take advantage of it maybe, because there's a hell of a lot of people that'd love to take your place and not complain.
                                  Just because ya'll get intimidated by his role it shouldn't affect your view on him as a person/boss. my opinion tho

                                          He's the CEO, all other people there have other funcions so it'd be a mistake putting "with" instead of "for"

I work my share of 80-100 hour work weeks but you don't see many people lining up for that anymore.
