Open Source Hippies

by skippy997 / March 28, 2006 7:21 AM PST

You know I thought the section on OpenSource advocates and the "sandal and pony-tail" look. I study computer science and I know at least 5 of those stereotypes through my dept.

I do however think that its funny that people see the "black pants, white shirt" MS Developers are held in higher regard then the "hippy" developers of tried and tester unix systems.

Cruel Irony at its finest

A while back I was watching some Channel 9 videos they did of the people who are developing Windows Vista, none of them were wearing a dress shirt or pants.
