Comment I've known about this for decades (Score 2) 273

Tenure evaluations focus on research that brings in money. The people who can do research well and are lousy at teaching are preferred over people who can do teaching well and are lousy at research. The latter group does not bring in the cash. The latter group rarely gets tenure. If you have a Ph.D you are expected to do more research than teaching.

Comment Re:Not much worry with a source build (Score 1) 472

Just be sure you do not build from source with a compiler that was not built from source, or a compiler that was built from source by a compiler that was not built from source, or a compiler that was built from source by a compiler that was built from source by a compiler that was not built from source ... and so on. In other words, source is fine (as long as you read it all) but binary is not since it may be secretly infected.
