Got clipboard support for gtk3 vclplug working in master
Our LibreOffice gtk2 vclplug inherits from our generic X11 vclplug and so in lots of places we just continued to use our historic X11 vclplug for various things, one big example being clipboard support. To do the same with th...

Der Artikel von Bloomberg hält sich länger an der spezifischen Art von Linus und seiner Sprache auf - seine Direktheit und sein Vokabular sind für viele Amerikaner erst einmal schwer verdaulich. Dabei hat das System und nicht nur kulturelle Wurzeln. Bloomberg kommt am Ende auch auf den Punkt, macht aber den Connect nicht:

»“You are seeing now that the software industry is a much healthier place,” he says. “It’s harder to make a breakout thing that no one else can replicate. For software that everyone ends up wanting, open-source is a good option. Software is infrastructure. ”«

Manche Software mehr als andere - Kernel, insbesondere Dateisysteme, glibc und andere wichtige Bibliotheken wie openssl, und einige andere Dinge sind definitiv Infrastruktur.

Niemand hat je gesagt "Hey, als ich den Schalter da betätigt habe ist das Licht angegangen, super!". Aber wehe das Licht geht mal nicht an, wenn jemand den Schalter drückt.

Bei aller Infrastruktur, Gas, Wasser, Scheiße, Openssl, Kernel, ist die Erfolgsmetrik nicht "best cases" ("neue Features"), sondern Versagen, Worst Cases. Warum versagt Infrastruktur, wie doll ist der Schaden, wer ist hinterher mit Exkrementen aus explodierten Rohren verschmiert und was ist alles vom Versagen der Infrastruktur mit runter gerissen worden?

Linus Art ist die einer Infrastrukturperson, seine Denkweise und seine Kommunikation sind direkt und auf den Punkt, das heißt, auf das Problem. » Torvalds also has a tendency to be nasty to the followers he does have, peppering Linux forums with foul language and reprimands. “SHUT THE F--- UP!” he wrote to a Linux developer in 2013. “Fix your f---ing ‘compliance tool,’ because it is obviously broken. And fix your approach to kernel programming.”«

Beachte, was er sagt: "Dein Code ist Dreck und den solltest Du fixen. Das geht nur, wenn Du Deine Denkweise anpaßt." Beachte, was er nicht sagt: "Du bist Dreck und Du solltest das Coden sein lassen." Das ist ein wichtiger Unterschied und man muß ihn verstanden haben, wenn man Infrastrukturcode machen will. Man muß lernen, daß man das Fundament baut, auf dem andere ihre Systeme errichten und daß in worst cases denken muß.

Das ist notwendig, damit Infrastruktur funktioniert.

Linus Torvalds is the creator and sole arbiter of the Linux operating system, which is used in everything from Google servers to rockets.
