Hey VIA, this is absolutely inacceptible!

http://linuxgizmos.com/compact-low-power-iot-gateway-runs-linux-on-i-mx6/

Security will be the top challenge for IoT applications. However, companies continue to announce IoT gateways which are delivered with an operating system revision being 279972 patches behind the current 4.2 kernel. How are people supposed to operate secure gateways with such an old kernel? Note that we don't talk about a longterm stable kernel here.

I simply don't get it - especially, as many, many people in the community did a lot of great work to bring excellent support for the i.MX6 into the mainline kernel. From the feature list, I would expect that, if you only care of the IoT gateway functionality (and leave graphics out, which is still work in progress), this device would more or less work out of the box (or with just a small patch stack) on top of 4.2+.
Sadly, this is just another example that hardware companies don't care about software...

"Linux BSP (Linux 3.0.35)". Doesn't "BSP" stand for "300K out-of-tree patches included"?

So true...
 
He takes an extreme view, but there's an element of truth. Still, I have run into several great engineering managers. It's one thing to have raw talent, it's yet another to be able to steer a team with a lot of raw talent in a given direction and actually deliver a product. Such abilities are indeed rare to come by and probably require a combo of: great engineering skill (enough to warrant the respect of those talented developers you are leading), a good handle on engineering psychology and a good dose of humility.
Everyone talks about how difficult it is to hire great software engineers in the Valley. But try hiring an engineering manager.
