Citáty Linus Torvalds


„Jsem sobecký bastard a pojmenovávám všechny své projekty po sobě. Napřed Linux, teď Git.“

„Talk is cheap. Show me the code.“


„software is like sex : it's better when it's free..“

„Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow.“

„Intelligence is the ability to avoid doing work, yet getting the work done.“

„Bad programmers worry about the code. Good programmers worry about data structures and their relationships.“

„Only wimps use tape backup. REAL men just upload their important stuff on ftp and let the rest of the world mirror it.“

„I am not a visionary. I'm an engineer. I'm happy with the people who are wandering around looking at the stars but I am looking at the ground and I want to fix the pothole before I fall in.“


„I will, in fact, claim that the difference between a bad programmer and a good one is whether he considers his code or his data structures more important. Bad programmers worry about the code. Good programmers worry about data structures and their relationships.“

„Don't ever make the mistake [of thinking] that you can design something better than what you get from ruthless massively parallel trial-and-error with a feedback cycle. That's giving your intelligence much too much credit.“

„I'm a bastard. I have absolutely no clue why people can ever think otherwise. Yet they do. People think I'm a nice guy, and the fact is that I'm a scheming, conniving bastard who doesn't care for any hurt feelings or lost hours of work if it just results in what I consider to be a better system.

And I'm not just saying that. I'm really not a very nice person. I can say 'I don't care' with a straight face, and really mean it.“

„I like offending people, because I think people who get offended should be offended.“


„Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program.“

„I'd argue that everybody wants to do something that matters“
