Proposed deletion[edit]

Since the {{prod}} tag was already removed by someone else, I'll just note here on this talk page that "This guy isn't notable enough for Wikipedia" is not itself a reason for deletion: you need to explain why exactly he isn't. Personally, given that he's one of the most prolific contributors to the Linux kernel these days and one of the most well-known kernel hackers, second (or third) only to people such as Andrew Morton or Linus himself, I think he certainly is notable; YMMV, but if it does, please do explain why. -- Schneelocke 18:22, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

I don't know Ingo Molnár and haven't heard of him. But I'm not into Linux I must admit. I just don't think Wikipedia should have an article for every full-time Linux developer. From the content of this stub I didn't get the impression that he is especially noticeable. --mms 20:39, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
The Ingo Molnar article is an essential addition to wikipedia. He is extremely important to the linux kernel as his scheduler work is second to none. Schedulers are essential to any operating systems and as such the page deserves to stay.

I also agree that the article is poor, very poor, and needs to be updated by someone who knows more about him than i do (not much). Cokehabit 21:37, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Ingo is a lady![edit]

I fixed this error in both the English and German version but the wrong version has been written back. Why? -- Zoltan Kovacs, kovzol@gmail.com

Sorry, I apparently found that Ingo is really a male. Sorry! -- Zoltan —Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.199.144.230 (talk) 09:39, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Wrong country of origin + name[edit]

Original research yields the result that Ingo is in fact German, not Hungarian as the article claims. Taking that into account, I find it unlikely that his name is spelled with á in Molnár, especially since I've never seen this anywhere else. Can we get sources for both these facts? 84.209.125.101 (talk) 07:05, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

I also suspect the same - on mailing lists, he always shows up as "Ingo Molnar" witout an accent (although other Hungarian developers also spell their names on the mailing list without accents, e.g. "Gabor Juhos", who would be spelled "Gábor Juhos" in the real life). Also, Ingo is not a Hungarian name. I would guess he's from Austria. --NetRolller 3D 21:20, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Molnar is a Hungarian last name, but Ingo is definitely a German (and Scandinavian) name. But with the way European history was and Hungary being part of the Great Austro-Hungarian Empire, it is very likely that he has some German or Austrian blood in him. For example, a lot of people in Slovakia have Hungarian last names and a lot of people in Poland have either German or Ukrainian last names etc. So unless there is a definite proof that he is an Austrian, I'd leave it as Hungarian.

Nonsense. Ingo is as far as I know not a Hungarian first name, therefore he was not born in Hungary, since this name was not allowed to be registered in Hungary that time he was born. (Now you can register almost any German, Slovak, Polish, Romanian, etc. first names in Hungary as a given name to your child if you declare yourself to be a member of an officially recognized national or ethnic community (="minority"). But not at the time he was born. Ingo Molnár I guess was born abroad (AT or DE) and was given a German first name. That has nothing to do with "Austrian blood" or the "Great Austro-Hungarian Empire". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.24.172.4 (talk) 08:17, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
I wonder which of you is the biggest clown...
