Comment None of Linux's choice quotes? (Score 5, Insightful) 43

25 years and they couldn't even include some of the best quotes by Linus over the years?

* Only wimps use tape backup: real men just upload their important stuff on ftp, and let the rest of the world mirror it ;)
* If Microsoft ever does applications for Linux it means I've won.
* In short: just say NO TO DRUGS, and maybe you won't end up like the Hurd people.
* My name is Linus Torvalds and I am your god.
* Dijkstra probably hates me.
* This is why we don't compile with "-W". Gcc is crap
* GCC 4.9.0 Seems To Be Terminally Broken
* (the spill is insane, btw, since it's spilling a constant value!)

No mention of how Linux used to be stuck with gcc 2.7.2 for years until egcs became stable?

Pfft, kids. :-)

Submission + - Linus Torvalds on the Evolution and Future of Linux

snydeq writes: The creator of Linux talks in depth about the kernel, community, and how computing will change in the years ahead, in an interview commemorating the 25th anniversary of Linux. 'We currently have a fairly unified kernel that scales from cellphones to supercomputers, and I've grown convinced that unification has actually been one of our greatest strengths: It forces us to do things right, and the different needs for different platforms tend to have a fair amount of commonalities in the end,' Torvalds says. Read the interview for Torvalds' take on OS updates, developing for Linux, the competition, containers, and more.

Name the Biology professor. And what are your qualifications to determine that he is incorrect for what he actually states?!

HIV certainly wouldn't "cause" AIDS if it isn't involved in the mechanisms that result in the deterioration of the immune system. Correlation is not causality.

I'm supposed to believe a Harvard degreed Medical Doctor with a specialization in Internal medicine for 25 years is a nutjob for expressing her "expert" opinion, because of a zero like you?

"Libertarians believe you shouldn't go to prison for refusing to vaccinate your children."
    You will not go to jail they just can not go to public school.

And that is pretty much the accepted legal standard throughout the country. Name one court case where the parents of an unvaccinated child was able to compel a school district to accept the child.

Only a shill would fail to realize that this one difference of opinion does not make a candidate unsuitable to be elected PotUS.

Let me guess: You one of those elect "Hillary for Queen". Yes, she's a bad liar, yes we'll invade Syria if she gets elected, yes, there's nothing "fishy" in trying to conceal your gov't communications from gov't law, so lets pretend the other three candidates are equally bad. Well, there's a good case to argue Trump would not be a good PotUS, but you're going to have to better than what you're doing to convince voters here that Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are incompetent, evil degenerates.
