Lendo uma entrevista do Linus Torvalds publicada hoje achei alguma passagens legais: “If I have a hero, it would have to be Sir Isaac Newton, partly because he’s unquestionably one of the most influential scientists who ever lived, but perhaps more importantly because of a quote he is famous for: “If I have been able to see farther, it was only because I stood on the shoulders of giants.” […] I think that quote is what personifies science. And open source. […] To invent something totally new and different just because you want to do something new and different is in my opinion, the height of stupidity and hubris.” É interessante essa idéia de que nem sempre é preciso inventar algo totalmente novo mas somente melhorar as coisas que existem. Esse é um dos motivos do Linux ter avançado tanto. Vou pensar nisso quando começar a procurar um assunto pra minha dissertação de mestrado… Outra frase legal é :“The less I have to do with customers, the better”. Eu concordo…
