Sure - Andrew Tanenbaum is the author of Minix - a small Unix system. 
He was totally against the design principles of the Linux kernel,
so.... :-) 

Another of my taglines says:

I still maintain the point that designing a monolithic kernel in 1991
is a fundamental error.  Be thankful you are not my student.  You
would not get a high grade for such a design :-) 
(Andrew Tanenbaum to Linus Torvalds)

And another:

Your job is being a professor and researcher: That's one hell of a
good excuse for some of the brain-damages of minix.
(Linus Torvalds to Andrew Tanenbaum)
