OpenBSD Brief but wide-ranging interview with Theo in which our leader opines about the good things in 3.7: "The list of new developments is impressive, but in my view not nearly as impressive as the small little details that continue to be fixed during each development cycle."

Uninformative

Here, I'll save you from reading this article; just go to the website. What a let down.

His answers were very brief. I wonder if he doesn't spend enough time interacting with real people. ;)

Haha

I'm sure he's sick of getting asked these same pointless questions over and over again. Sort of like watching Russel Crowe give pissy answers to some soft-ball reporter from People Magazine.

Having said that... what a pointless, piece-of-crap article! Between pointless installation reviews and ignorant commentaries by high school kids, why do I still bother with this site?

Wha?

Theo seems totally uninterested in answering pathetic questions.

I used to use and test OpenBSD extensively, but I got tired of Theo and his ilk. Folks like this are what give us techies a reputation for lack of social skills. I mean, you could at least *try* to sound like something other than a surly fourteen-year-old tired of his parents asking "how was your day?" Look at his answer about the kernel architecture: "Read the code." Yep, that's a useful and informative answer that's sure to attract talented programmers who aren't familiar with your project but might have something to contribute. Contrast this with the attitude you find when working with GNOME developers or countless other Free software projects.

Quality, security, usefulness, and innovation don't have to go hand-in-hand with poor communication and interaction. But in OpenBSD's case, you get all of the above. I'd rather use and help projects that want us around instead of porting the BOFH attitude to development.
