Bugs & Viruses 1983. The year of the IBM PC XT, the Apple Lisa, Pioneer 10 leaving the solar system, and Hooters opening up shop in Florida. It's also the birthyear of a 25 year old BSD bug, squashed only a few days ago.

In the read more section.
The bug itself? Well, I'm no programmer so the actual code is kind of gibberish to me, but I think I get the gist of the problem.

Are those Ballmers words? How do you solve a bug and not be a programmer. How does he know what an inode is?

Above it already says he is a developer.

I am confused. I guess to early for me in the morning.
