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.

Not a programmer but solved a bug?

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.

Perhaps when you read the original OSNews post there was an error in the layout or something, but at it's current state it's pretty clear it was not a quote from the developer.
