Linux "Over a thousand developers contribute code to any given Linux kernel release. It's a process that works well from a technical perspective, but it's also one that has its fair share of shortcomings. In a panel at the Linux Foundation Collaboration summit this week, top Linux kernel developers detailed their common pet peeves about the Linux development model. It's a model that is not for the feint of heart ."

Thickness of skin and depth of skills/ability are usually correlated...

Utter bullshit.

It totally dependant on somebodies personality.

Muhammed Ali slagged Joe Frasier off, if you watch the documentary about the fight ... Joe pretty much was fighting half the fight almost blind while going toe to toe with Ali.

Valentino Rossi and Arnold Schwarzenegger (BodyBuilding careed) used to try to humiliate their competitors so they were wound up and couldn't think straight when competing.

Max Biaggi was a very good MotoGP rider and was every bit good as Rossi, however if someone gets under your skin you tend not to think right and Rossi knew this.

While sports is about competing, open source is about co-operation ... pissing people off has been proven pretty much everytime to be counter that goal.
