Just remember, you may love tech, but it will never love you back like your family. Follow your heart.

Dude, that was about as heartfelt as it gets. I've really been wondering about YOU as a person because I absolutely LOVE the channel (s) and this definitely sheds a ton of light on your character. Love this video!

If you're enjoying the work, keep at it. If you're not, then hand off the reigns and let it run. Or, find something in the middle. Live your life now that you're in a financial position to do so. If you love keeping up with tech, do it! Think about what's on your plate now....get rid of the stuff you don't like (children not included!!) :) Don't feel like you need to continue doing certain things just because you've grown used to doing them. I handle a ton of different roles at my company...I have to keep reminding myself that as the company resources increase, we can actually hire people to do those things, and that would be a good thing for everyone. I'd encourage you to apply the same critical thinking to your circumstance. Great work, btw, your company's content is amazing.

*So,this is where this staring meme came from.*
"I hate waste." Irony for certain. Being a top "influencer" in your category you can start looking at what manufacturer's can do to reduce waste/change packaging/manufacturer promoted recycling or ewaste handling.

Know no matter what choice you make all of us will be behind you. I never thought that one day I would have my own pc. It’s not the money factor but the thing is I was told I would be a nerd and didn’t know much on the subject. You helped me build the courage to build my own pc. Anyway all you need to know is give yourself a break and reflect on what you want to do. We love you and hope the best

I guess youtube got offended by my use of the word faggot by deleting my first comment, as it isn't actually a derogatory term in its derivative usage. It did literally mean "a bundle of wood", as linus stated, also around the 1600s the bassoon was also called a faggot. If youtube stop using there algorithm to deter offensive language, they'd actually know that I'm not saying anything offensive.

coming from experience of working 12-16 hours day throughout the formative years of my kids life was the biggest mistake I ever made in life. You've made it, spend time with your family. Way more important in the long run than money.

1. You are a roll model, there are millions of weird nerdy people... In all walks of life... 2. You're not promoting consumerism... Your promoting logical purchases for people to evaluate... To build a good product that will last as long as possible given the ever changing spectrum that is computer tech... 3. People make mistakes... People have personal lows... You're hitting rock bottom and that's okay... You have trusted and loyal coworkers... Take time off go to your kids sports games... Take a vacation... Believe it or not, having a sub in everyone once in awhile is kinda nice change a pace... 4. Your making a difference by showing people information that most companies try to hide so you pay them to do it... You're calling some of those companies out even... There are other techies in the world that want the knowledge your sharing... 5. That little kid that was terminal asked for you he did it because he wanted 1 last thing in his life... To meet his hero... He was a techy nerd just like you... He aspired to do the things you do even for a day... That little thing you can't comprehend I can promise you, to him was the single greatest thing he ever got to experience... Meeting his hero.. You were that kids Batman, Superman, Captain America... You're message your videos are not a promotion of mindless consumerism... They're for hobbyist, business, enthusiast, intimidated people who couldn't imagine trying! Something for people to work for, Imagine how many people who got jobs doing computer tech souly because you developed there basic foundation and understanding of computers..... Dang dude you're selling yourself short

I've been watching since the NCIX and the original Techquickie days so to see you come so far and create a company of like-minded guys and girls is just inspiring. You've not only made a life for yourself and your family but also for those that work with you. If you decide to step back then no one would blame you as it takes a lot to do what you have done in such a relatively short time span.

Without Linus I would never be pursuing my career in network engineering right now all of the simple 5 min tech episodes was all it took to get me hooked. Thank you Linus for everything you have done. You've definitely made a bigger impact on this world than you think. You alone have inspired thousands of kids to become what they are today.

Linus, I remember watching your video years ago. I always wanted to build my own computer but was so scared to do so. Then after watching more of your videos and getting involved in your forum I finally decided to do so. I distinctly remember getting on the LTT forums and asking for help when my pc wouldn't boot for the first time. Sure enough, I got responses from multiple people giving me advice on the problem in minutes. Turns out, it was just a simple cmos reset and then everyhing worked perfectly. I honestly both respect and admire the community you have built for people that are interested in tech. Seriously, watching you and your company grow over the years has been an awesome experience.

Something tells me it's not just retirement, he sounds like he's going through a lot, as if he is possibly going through a period of depression, not sadness, but just that one feeling of mixed melancholia. "If I got hit by a bus tomorrow" "Life would go on", it's as if there were some scary hints being dropped into the video. We hope you're doing fine Linus, we wish you the best.
