“We need more conferences in the Caribbean,” said Linux. “That said I have been diving enough because two days ago I was on a boat and it turned out that I knew the boat captain because he used to be on a boat in Hawaii. When you start recognizing boat captains from around the world you know there is something really, really right.”
I bet writing Linux and Linus two dozen times makes things like this happen constantly.
Git? The official tools probably will be, but that doesn't really matter one way or the other. "Git" is more a data model and a frame of mind than it is a piece of software, and you can already choose to use jGit to work on that data model, within that frame of mind.
I'd get a lot more involved in the kernel proper if I wasn't stuck in 1999 =\ (I think the kernel allows C99). I use classes and templates too much in C++ to go back.
As someone who contributed a bit to a kernel in D, it's... interesting. Rust could be used to write a kernel as well, but I'd recommend anyone to wait for 1.0 before doing so...
Principally, that is the reason even though I'd love to fix the internal breakage of the linux desktop (pulseaudio issues, gstreamer, mesa, wayland, etc) all of them are written in C and I drank Bjarnes kool-aid and can't go for an entire source file in C without desperately wanting a C++ feature of some kind. The abstractions are just such huge productivity gains writing everything imperatively drives me nuts (at that, a lot of my code is imperative, but only when it is right for the job - if I have a great description of a collection of data and functionality, classes are correct; if I need to treat functions as data and avoid state functional is correct; etc - trying to lock myself into one methodology after writing in all 3 makes me feel heavily restricted, it is one of the reasons I love python).
If I ever go back to living in the Caribbean, I'd be willing to organize some.
If not, you are wrong, simple as that. Using "of" instead of "have" in 2013 is a spelling mistake, period.
And before the P.C. gestapo gets on my case. I think it's great that women are involved in software engineering. I'm more interested in the P.C. dynamics to promote it.
I really wish we'd have a more progressive tone here than a tabloid.
My understanding wasn't that he used profanity, but he effectively flamed people. Swearing is just another tool in the toolkit as far as chewing someone out is concerned, modulo the ones with obvious gender connotations.
