Linus Torvalds and Greg Kroah-Hartman on 20 years of Linux @ LinuxCon Japan 2011

Linus Quotes:

“Software is like sex: it’s better when it’s free”

“Talk is cheap Show me the code”

“I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby – won’t be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones”


“what made linux work – is not the big vision – but the persistance and hard work”

“Was ich an der Hightech-Branche nicht leiden kann, ist dieses ständige Gerede von Innovation und Visionen, das man in Keynotes hört. Alle suchen eine großartige Idee für die nächsten 20 Jahre. Ich bin aber überzeugt davon, dass die Welt so nicht funktioniert. Die Veränderungen haben sich aus guten, aber meist kleinen Einfällen ergeben – und vor allem mit einer großen Portion Fleiß und Schweiß.”

“if i am loosing sleep over something it’s never about technical issues – but over politics and people-human (social competence and cooperation) issues.

“It is hard to develop a big project with thousands of people involved – and tens of houndreds of companies that are major contributors and have completely different ideas of where they want to go”

“mandy times big disagreements between developers”

“that can frustrate me is the ineraction with people – i am happy to say – that usually solve our problems – we at times there has been really bad blood in the community – where developers argue for months – people might have a hard time on the mailing-list because they get very negative responses”

“if you are suttle on the internet – nobody get’s it – you can’t do development and be polite – sometimes – i feel – because people need to know where you are”

…that out of the mouth of the nerd that ranks social competence very low on his priority list :-D, so maybe you should start being nicer to people, Linus?

i have a suggestion, a very simple “rule of engagement” that does not kill off motivation right from the start:

  1. praise
  2. critizise


Greg Quotes:

“Ubuntu could contribute more to the kernel – they are very skilled developers”
