That’s pretty insulting to everybody else who works on the project (including the many contributors here). 

Besides, it’s just plain wrong. Swift is a tool, and like any other tool it is judged on its intrinsic merit for a job, regardless of whichever names may be attached to it.

We have contributors from IBM, Microsoft, Uber and/or Lyft, maybe also from Facebook (not sure), Apple (obviously), and probably more. I don’t think they all decided to invest time in making Swift better because Chris Lattner told them he would always work at Apple. So chill.
