    September 11, 2005 - Kernel Source Fork Day

    People will have two paths to take, one is the
    code-bloat path (aka IPv6) the other is the
    minimalist path, which needs no new name, or
    any name, less is more. Code will be REMOVED
    from the Kernel to make it MORE stable and
    MORE secure.

    “Note that nobody reads every post in linux-kernel. In fact, nobody who expects to have time left over to actually do any real kernel work will read even half. Except Alan Cox, but he's actually not human, but about a thousand gnomes working in under-ground caves in Swansea. None of the individual gnomes read all the postings either, they just work together really well.” - Linus Torvalds

    “Our attitude with TCP/IP is, `Hey, we'll do it, but don't make a big system, because we can't fix it if it breaks  — nobody can.'” “TCP/IP is OK if you've got a little informal club, and it doesn't make any difference if it takes a while to fix it.”  — Ken Olson, in Digital News, 1988

    Unix is a glorified video game
    by Anonymous on Wednesday August 24 2005, @09:22AM (#16070)
    Unix is a lot more complicated (than CP/M) of course  — the typical Unix hacker can never remember what the PRINT command is called this week  — but when it gets right down to it, Unix is a glorified video game. People don't do serious work on Unix systems; they send jokes around the world on USENET or write adventure games and research papers.  — E. Post “Real Programmers Don't Use Pascal”, Datamation, 7/83

    Prominent North American Enterprise Linux Vendor's Legal Department Targets www.centos.org Website Content
    To squelch the questions (related to the changing content on www.centos.org), we decided this needs to be published.

    The CentOS Team has been contacted by representatives of a Prominent North American Enterprise Linux Vendor's hired legal team regarding the use of said Prominent North American Enterprise Linux Vendor's Trademarks on www.centos.org. (Full Email follows.) While the CentOS team feels we are using the Prominent North American Enterprise Linux Vendor's marks in a fair and legal manner, we have no choice but to eliminate the majority of the Prominent North American Enterprise Linux Vendor's marks that are being used on www.centos.org.
