Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

Yunzil Re:Git is an example of Linus Torvalds at his wors (387 comments)

Since this is open-source, and you think the documentation is poor, why don't you fix it?

Good job falling back on the old "Well why don't you just fix it yourself then, smarty man" argument. Congratulations, you are an example of the hostile community we're talking about.

Confidence Shaken In Open Source Security Idealism

Yunzil Re:Speedy fixes and obvious "relay all to Microsof (264 comments)

As ESR famously said (but with context this time):
given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow.

Addendum: Of course, it might take 20 years for anyone to notice, because everyone is assuming that someone else is looking at it, but whatever.

Examples?

Wait, you want examples of people who are too busy to review other people's code? OK, here's one: me.

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

Yunzil Re:hum (763 comments)

It violates the Unix design philosophy

If the Unix design philosophy is to have cryptic init files scattered all over creation then it needs to be violated.

Lost Opportunity? Windows 10 Has the Same Minimum PC Requirements As Vista

Yunzil Let me get this straight (554 comments)

Someone on Slashdot is actually complaining that Windows runs well on older hardware? We're through the looking glass here, people.

Intel Drops Gamasutra Sponsorship Over Controversial Editorials

Yunzil Re:GamerGate is about sex, not corruption (724 comments)

But then again, the whole thing about GamerGate was punishing a game developer for the crimes of game development while female, having sex while female,

No, actually, it was about exposing the hypocrisy of a terrible person (who happens to be female, although that was irrelevant).

What To Expect With Windows 9

Yunzil Re:A few things... (545 comments)

1. Really? I want the exact opposite of that. I don't give a crap what's going on under the hood or what the filesystem is doing. Pull a blanket over it, I don't want to see it.

2. OK

3. If they allow it you'll get people here posting "Windows is so dumb, it let me copy an mp3 to my phone that it couldn't play!"

4. See #3.

5. OK

Linux you just install once and then it runs and runs, regardless of any updates.

Kickstarter's Problem: You Have To Make the Game Before You Ask For Money

Maybe a card-based espionage game isn't as compelling as you think it is. Just sayin'.

Ask Slashdot: What Are the Strangest Features of Various Programming Languages?

Yunzil Re:+ operator for string concat? (729 comments)

You missed the point. It's not just concatenating strings, it's concatenating strings and... things that aren't strings. In C++ you can't add a string and an int (well, you can but you have to go out of your way to do it). You will get a long-winded error about not having a '+' operator that takes arguments of those types.

Anita Sarkeesian, Creator of "Tropes vs. Women," Driven From Home By Trolls

Yunzil Re:Slashdot comments indicative of the problem (1262 comments)

Except it's not.

Except it is. Sorry. No one cares if Zoe Quinn sucks 37 dicks (in a row). A lot of people care if she's getting positive press from the owners of those dicks. (Not to mention the fact that she's being a huge hypocrite because by her own definition she raped her boyfriend by sleeping around.)
