 KDE and food for thought


  I am indebted to Robert Lichtenberger for encouraging me to install
KDE on my Linux box. KDE demonstrates that something resembling System-3,
at least by how it looks to a {*filter*} eye, has been developed in C++ and
is now available. While browsing through the KDE help I found an interesting
paper(*) on the "bazaar" style of development, and on when the wrong
thing is the right thing. Some of you may know these papers, but I did not.
I enjoyed the phrase "Unix and C are the ultimate computer viruses".
More seriously, though, there are some IMHO serious thoughts there
summarizing what appears to be a success in software development, namely
Linux, and Linus Torvalds tactics leading to this success. It may not be
a bad idea to have a look. At least I think I learned something.




(*) Should we still call an HTML paper a "paper"?
