>"When I looked at the gnu implementation of the "cat" command and found out its source file was 833 lines of C code (just to implement _cat_), I decided the FSF sucked at this whole "software" thing. (Ok, I discovered that reading the gcc source at Rutgers back in 1993, but at the time I thought only GCC was a horrible bloated mass of conflicting #ifdefs, not everything the FSF had ever touched. Back then I didn't know that the "Cathedral" in the original Cathedral and the Bazaar paper was specifically referring to the GNU project.)"
