Bravo Linus Torvalds!

Setidaknya ada 2 hal yg membuat gw respect terhadap Linus Torvalds:

  1. Sukses besar mengembangkan Linux, suatu kernel yg awalnya adalah hobby project, menjadi kernel yg powerful. Rasanya hampir setiap arsitektur hardware yg ada di dunia ini sudah disupport oleh Linux. Ini SERIUS.
  2. Sekarang yang TIDAK SERIUS :mrgreen:. Gw suka caranya bashing (ngebacot). Antara lain:
    • Linus against Pascal

      The Pascal language is a prime example of the latter problem. Because it
      doesn’t have a “break” statement, loops in (traditional) Pascal end up
      often looking like total shit, because you have to add totally arbitrary
      logic to say “I’m done now”.

    • Linus against C++

      C++ is a horrible language. It’s made more horrible by the fact that a lot
      of substandard programmers use it, to the point where it’s much much
      easier to generate total and utter crap with it. Quite frankly, even if
      the choice of C were to do *nothing* but keep the C++ programmers out,
      that in itself would be a huge reason to use C.

Hmm.. apakah ini efek samping dari kebanyakan berurusan dengan kernel??
