Growing Too Fast?

These are the quotes of Linus Torvald (yes, THAT Linus. The famous original author & chief architect of Linux kernel)


Your job is being a professor and researcher: That’s one hell of a
good excuse for some of the brain-damages of minix.


and 17 years later:

We are definitely not the streamlined, hyper-efficient kernel I envisioned when I started writing Linux…

Hopefully I take those statements in context. So, the question is: what can we learn from those?

Are you thinking what I am thinking, which is the development process that expands so vast that it deviates the original goal?
