Interview with Linus Torvalds - Jan / 2012

Good morning, afternoon or evening. Because this is my first post on this beautiful site (I'm not birthday, I'm born!) I chose taking advantage of the fact that it is not here yet, and for the benefit of the friends of the site, to start from one of the roots of this issue that unites us. Or more precisely from your Kernel.

Because the only thing that I learned to program with flaws is myself; I let that Finn, who speaks Swedish and most likely started programming because it was cold outside (very cold), take the floor; and very well that it does.

Prague or not Prague the interview January, 2012 (ending) Part 3 of 3:

I leave you a series of questions with which I would like to organize a debate:

- Have watched at least one video.

- Tell us what impression you have of the proprietary and free software models respectively.

- How do you think each of these models helps the world?

- What did you think of the horizontal organization model that Linus spoke about?

- Do you know another group, organization or company with models of organizational horizontality? Tell us which ones.

From Linux, we can be better.

    - Tell us what impression you have of the proprietary and free software models respectively.
    Pfff !!! I think that everything is already written on the subject, I will not say anything new, only that I consider that they are two different business models, one that is on the way to obsolescence (I think that the whole quilombo of the soup law is the tip of the iceberg), and another is the future, it advances very slowly but on solid foundations

    - How do you think each of these models helps the world?
    Fua! Very philosophical question, since it depends on what you use, each model will have an impact on the world, the world is helped by people using free or proprietary software

    - What did you think of the horizontal organization model that Linus spoke about?
    It is ideal, for the type of organization that is driven by results, where the product is efficient ideas (widely used by google or HP)

    I say that Linus brings itch with google, because he is the one who mentions the most, apart from a fork of his kernel and did not take it into account. However, it leaves between seeing that the patents that google is buying to shield android, make it a troll. And it also puts Apple and its lawsuit with Samsung as a villain, since as it is its hardware supplier, it is competing unfairly. Not for nothing is the Galaxy S2 better than the iPhone 4s: p

    How do you think each of these models helps the world?
    I say that the Linux distributed model is beginning to be used in software development companies, because they need more programmers to meet the growing demand for games and applications in the mobile markets.

    What did you think of the horizontal organization model that Linus spoke about?
    Although I think he did not say horizontal, but distributed as a network. I think that with the use of tools like git, the developer has the freedom to make forks that work according to their needs and that model in my opinion is admirable, because it adds greater support to devices and platforms. And it helps more people fix bugs or fix problems that may be years old.

    Thank you very much folks for thinking and writing accordingly. I have also read your opinions carefully and will do so whenever they are. Of course, if anyone has a good question to add, please do so… We're reading.
