Ten Funny Quotes by Linus Torvalds
« on: October 15, 2007, 03:45:39 PM »
Ten Funny Quotes by Linus Torvalds, among them:
  • "How should I know if it works? That's what beta testers are for. I only coded it." (somewhere in a posting)
  • "I'm an idiot.. At least this one [bug] took about 5 minutes to find." (in response to a bug report)
  • "If you want to travel around the world and be invited to speak at a lot of different places, just write a Unix operating system." (source unknown)
  • "Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That would just be a completely unintentional side effect." (New York Times interview)
  • "An infinite number of monkeys typing into GNU emacs would never make a good program." (source unknown)

This toon has absolutely nothing to do with the post. However, it is funny.

Haha. I heard of something like "I don't like grapical debuggers. They encourage bad code". He meant debuggers with GUI.
