No, of course.

According to recent tl;dr the man has gotten even more senile.
Nevermind the microkernel vs. monlithic debate, now he
thinks parallelism is a fad. "Four cores ought to be
enough for everybody". According to him, computing progress
is now over. Stick a FoRK in it, it's done.
I would rather say the core functionality of an OS is
done. Put into a tiny (it's not that it's doing much)
parastic system operating out of band. No more context
switches. Put a million nodes into a box, and run a
monotask on each of them.
Of course Torvalds is not of much use in a such a world.
