2583 : What is sopho (sophisticated)?

I was reading about Linus Travolds (here below).

And I had mixed feelings. On one hand, I am all for compassion and conscious leadership.  And yet I could relate to parts of what Linus is saying. Clip below.

Until this weekend, Torvalds had not only defended his aggressive behavior but insisted that it contributed to Linux’s runaway success. “If you want me to ‘act professional,’ I can tell you that I’m not interested,” he wrote in 2013, in response to a prominent Linux contributor, Sage Sharp, who demanded on a public e-mail list that Torvalds stop using “physical intimidation, verbal threats or verbal abuse” in his e-mails. “I’m sitting in my home office wearign [sic] a bathrobe,” Torvalds wrote. “The same way I’m not going to start wearing ties, I’m also not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what ‘acting professionally’ results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways.”

I somehow relate to what he saying above as well.
Which means I both want to promote goodness and the arsedness he is suggesting here.
The real world is exactly as he says it is above.
