hahaha i did not know that Messier came up with his famous list of objects because he "was a comet hunter, and was frustrated by objects which resembled but were not comets, so he compiled a list of them... to avoid wasting time on them." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messier_object
a reminder that the things you'll be remembered for might be the things you throw away while trying to do something else

While we're talking FOSS cultural patterns, one we should work to stamp out forever is "It's hard to use, which I like because it keeps people out". That attitude is born partly of Linus' mentality all these years and it has to go. The leftist imperative for free software is that *nobody* deserves to have their computing experience controlled by corporations.

Happy to hear that Linux has adopted the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct. I ran across that CoC in 2015 and adopted it for my Playscii project.
More surprising is Torvalds' admission and promise to do better. His attitude, and the culture that accrued around it for many years, drove away a lot of talented contributors. While today's news doesn't make up for that, it's a starting point. I'm hoping this leads to better things on many fronts.

literally the worst thing about he linux coc story is all the bigoted 'thuh sjws ruined everything' fucknuggets crawling out of the woodwork
So thoughts on today:
Whether or not Linus follows through with his reflection and finds a way to improve himself and make up for three decades of being hostile and regressive, I’m excited about the ripple effect of these things on the broader open source community.
