From The Inquirer:

LINUX UBER-GEEK Linus Torvalds stunned his fellow open sourcerers by admitting that the Linux kernel has become bloated.

Speaking at LinuxCon in the US, Torvalds said that Linux has gotten a bit porky despite having been developed as an alternative to bloated Windows ware.

He said that while the open source community has long pointed the finger at Microsoft Windows as bloated, it appears that with success has come added heft. Heft that makes Linux "huge and scary now," according to Torvalds.
