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 ."

That is something we should talk about a lot more on our education. People read too much on critics about some of their work and transfer them to personal level, and it poisons the whole environment somehow, at least to the one affected.

I have worked with all kinds of characters: some brilliant and helpful, some impatient, some that think they are more thoughtful than they are, some that underestimate themselves. I try to evade the interpretation of critics as personal attack as most as I can, even when it seems likely, and learn something from the episode. There is just too much more about life to get pissed off because some of your work would be done better or in a different way.
