Obviously, the guy's very biased. Of course, so am I, being that I'm running Linux rather than BSD lol. Anyway, the article has quite a bit not quite "false" information but spin- misleading. Such as "don't they see how bad it is?" He doesn't list reasons. Also, he doesn't acnowledge that he just credited the whole Linux spirit: if it's broken, fix it, rather than ditching it. They keep working if there's problems, which really benefits all its users.
There are other parts, such as "I think our code quality is higher, just because that's really a big focus for us." "Linux has never been about quality." ROFLMAO! If software development isn't about code quality, I'm really wondering what it IS about. Obviously everyone, even in many cases Microsoft, try for code quality. As for "There's also a difference in motivation. "Linux people do what they do because they hate Microsoft. We do what we do because we love Unix," that's complete bull as well in that SOME Linux users do what they do because of MS hatetred, and some do it out of love for Linux. Often it's part one and part the other. There's a whole very diverse group of people, and what's he's doing is utter stereotyping, and broadcasting his people as angelic.
"You know what I found? Right in the kernel, in the heart of the operating system, I found a developer's comment that said, 'Does this belong here?' "Lok says. "What kind of confidence does that inspire? Right then I knew it was time to switch." Yes, in many millions of lines of code, there's going to be some disagreements. It happens sometimes, Mr. Raadt, and it happens with BSD systems as well lol.
Sour grapes I'd say.
