Linus, Sarah and the Linux Civil Code

Filed under
Linux

Anyone who has ever spent five minutes in the Linux blogosphere is probably already well-aware of Linux creator Linus Torvalds' propensity for speaking his mind in the plainest of terms.

It was just slightly more than a year ago, after all, that he dropped an "F-bomb" on Nvidia, though that's by no means been the only example over the years.

Well, Torvalds is surely no stranger to criticism for his blunt approach, but recently an example arose to make that disapproval more clear than ever.

The critic this time around? None other than a Linux kernel developer named Sarah Sharp.

They should keep their mouths shut and take it like pros

They should keep their mouths shut and take it like pros. Can't really say more than this.
Linus is giving the world Linux and what does he ask in return? Castles, yachts, limousines? No.
At least let him speak however the fuck he wants. He's earned it.

Regarding Linus's wealth, at least one article at therichest.org indicates that his net worth is 150 million, and his annual salary is 10 million. That's darn near a million a month--hardly poverty by any standards.

The comment implies that not pursuing or possessing wealth condones rude and boorish behavior. I couldn't disagree more.

GNU/Linux for beginners: How Audio Works

One of the things that I found pretty confusing about GNU/Linux during my transition from using Windows as my primary OS to using GNU/Linux, was how audio worked. In Windows, you don’t really have to think about anything, or know how to configure any specific utilities for the most part; audio just works. You might need to install a driver for a new headset or soundcard but that’s about as heavy as things get. Audio in GNU/Linux has come a long way and nowadays functions fairly well when it comes to the simplicity that users migrating from Windows are accustomed to; but there are still some nuances and terms that new users may not be familiar with.
