I am quiet dismayed by the fact that Linux Kernel Mailing List is now intruded by big brother companies and they want it to be kind of moderated. The author here http://www.internetnews.com/blog/skerner/is-it-time-to-restore-civility-to-linux-development.html says he supports it. THE HELL.
First companies like Intel and Nvidia must understand ‘The Hacker Culture’. A hacker is a free person (who thinks he is THE GOD), change his feelings and he might not be as creative as he would be. Yes in mailing lists of open-source software around the world, there are abusive words, hard for newbies to take it in, that’s how it was, and that’s how it will be, and that’s how creative minds works. No secrets, just blunt honesty. If a company or person cannot tolerate it, may it be out of it. None begged them to develop Linux Kernel.
If Intel thinks it has truly got smart people than those who develop the Linux, it must put out its own OS! Thereby proving people who are introverts can build a better OS. Simple.
Hello Intel, if you want a brahmin sugar coated talk, tell your employees to goto a Marketing guys mailing list dominated by MBA’s.
