Maybe that's because people are tired of women trying to ruin their company from the inside with pushing of unnecessary social reforms, lawsuits, and victim complexes. They just fucked themselves over by making them the further convict of the modern day: the worker no one wants to risk hiring but are legally bound to not discriminate against, and most of the people that do willingly look for them are doing so for the benefits to their company (in this case weight with social justice retards)

2006. 7th generation video game consoles were the beginning of the end for everything. Retards, normals, hipsters, and everyone else got into video games. Apart from the fact that it began decimating the video game industry with companies seeing an influx of normals as a reason to change their approach to cater to stupid people, but it was also a gateway for all these people to get into related industries such as comp Sci and tech as a whole. Meanwhile girls started pretending to be gamers because it was in and they must use it to be desirable. The overwhelmingly positive reaction to 'gurl gamerz' let them get their foot in the door for other things. "If we can play video games just like boys and get massive attention we should do it elsewhere too. " Then their liberal arts feminist classes reinforced the idea that they should be allowed in this industry without the right qualifications.

In college they teach what we call Gender Feminism, whose philosophy is women need to seek out areas where they are victims and right the wrongs. Basically a big club of women dedicated to calling out any place that doesn't give women an advantage because they're victims. This is opposed to Equity Feminism which peaches equality rather than superiority or advantage in competition for being women. Media attention and the successful brainwashing of women into actually believing women are a superior race puts us close to where we are today. (An example of the extreme end of this is the woman who raised her son as a girl and mistreated him, then tried to castrate him in a McDonald's bathroom).

(continued)
>>
>>51375500
At this point they not only believe their nonsense but they are slowly gaining the favor of media, government, industry, the common man, and more.

It all started with normal people and women massively migrating to games and technology when the Xbox 360 came out, and more specifically, the releases of Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3 which basically sold the consoles to normal people singlehandedly because of their massive popularity even among little kids.

Ridiculous.

Linus knows the (very obvious) fact is if the work environment is so sophomoric and hostile it will end up turning away people who could have contributed good code. So if all you care about is good code, you have to be able to create an environment for it to be generated. And that means reining in the dicks.

Actually, the very best leaders know how to bring out the best in their employees by tailoring their approach. Some people respond well to the shit talk, some people respond well to gentler constructive criticism. Some people won't work unless you crack the whip, and some people won't work unless you give them continual praise - typically you don't want either of those types working for you in the first place.

Publically reward good behavior, and privately admonish bad behavior (unless it's egregious or malicious, and they deserve to have their shit called).

linux is open source

open source means anyone can contribute

open source doesn't mean anyone can contribute garbage

open source also means ANYONE, even sand niggers can contribute as long as the code isn't garbage and / or fits into the project at hand.

look at Con Kolivas. white man, with a real white penis. his patchset, even though amazing, never made it, and most likely wont make it into mainline kernel even though it provides great performance for desktop usage.

his code got, and still is denied from entering the mainline kernel and he doesn't have tits. there is zero racism or sexism going on here. his work didn't get accepted simply because it doesn't fit with the direction the mainline kernel wants to go.

but since its open source, you, and distros can choice to manually apply and use the patches if you choose to.

its not linus fault that mostly men contribute and that linus doesn't want shit tier code in his project he created way back in the 90's. he has pride for what he, and thousands of people contribute to. he, and all the other main kernel developers don't want their baby turned to shit because of some idiots political agenda.

hes not going to deny someones code just to meat a gender quota. let alone deny someones AMAZING code because they are white and have a penis just because he has to meet a women to men ratio quota.

its beyond stupid that these people want to ruin a great project, one of the greatest accomplishments in computers, just because of identity politics.

Don't most contributors not even interact with Linus except through several layers of abstraction?

>>51375923

>>
>>51375920
How do you know it is a true meritocracy if you have people who could have made contributions turning away from the community because of the work environment?

I could hire 25 crack heads to work for my company and 1 normal person. The normal person would definitely quit first thing. Would I be right to say "well, they probably would have contributed shit anyway", and then proceed to praise the crackhead with the best (shit) performance?

You've got to keep in mind this push for a better environment is in very broad strokes. Things like "Don't call people cunts" and "Don't randomly say 'Hitler was right'".

Lol oh well. Glad I have a man's profession, where I don't have to worry about being PC.

It makes sense for SJWs. They have come to believe that all humans are entirely equal in every way. Since everyone is equally qualified for everything it's only logical that you'd see a proper % of representation in everything. So 50% men, 50% women, 10% of them black, 5% of those with a disability etc. Whether it's programmers or the military.
Yet this is not reality. Why? The evil patriarchy of white cis men is keeping everyone down obviously.

That's an extremely flawed analogy

Disregarding that, i know it's a meritocracy because it's fucking open source and because the people who actually contribute says Linux will shit on you IF you fuck up. Do your job and he wont

There is no room for special snowflakes at the top and if someone gets turned away from the community because they can't handle being told they suck then clearly they aren't cut out for this and thus are not the best people for the job

How is that any different from what I've said? Humanities are a useless degree born of supply and demand economics. Millions of retards pushed into college get to go and waste tons of money loaned from banks to take the only classes they could hope to pass. Companies have no way to hire and profit from humanities because the humanities are a study with no use aside from making snake oil salesmen in colleges and universities rich.

well, if you think having a humanities degree means you aren't more useful than a cashier... you should understand that those who push for a political ideology, and even those who push for some random brand are people who studied humanities and are being paid by the same companies that supposedly consider them useless.
problem being, some people have ethics and don't want to treat other like sheep so they'd prefer to do research or something else instead of having to deceive people into buying useless shit, but in this neoliberal world, being useful means sucking the dicks of those who have the money. ironically enough, your politicians, who are supposed to represent you, are also being paid to do whatever the fuck rich people wants, and here we are, doing whatever politicians tell us is good for us.

What people dont realize is that Linus is not the Boss/CEO of Linux. He is just another contributor to a all-volunteer project. He no authority to hire/fire anyone. He has no authority to reprimanded anyone for disruptive or stupid behavior. The Linux mailing lists are open to anyone, he has no authority to control peoples behavior. Pretty much all mailing lists and usenet groups have always been a haven for flamewars and trolling. He is just doing what everyone else does on mailing list chat. If he backs down and is forced to adopt a code of behavior, the spirit of openness and free speech will be gone, nothing will get done because the primadona blowhards will just spam their stupidity unimpeded

I don't give a fuck how "civil" the environment that produces the kernel is. What I care about is technical ability and quality of the kernel itself. This isn't a Chinese electronics factory, it's a FOSS project; you work on it voluntarily. If you don't like the environment, and others don't feel the same, don't keep subjecting yourself to it. It's that easy, just walk away.

From what I hear he's only a dick about it if he knows you can do better. If you're an experienced contributor whose work he's seen and approved of frequently, then you go and make a rookie error, he'll chew you out for it. That seems pretty reasonable to me.

If he was just an asshole I'd like Linus.

Unfortunately, he's also an egotist and his interactions with the free software movement (which has it's own set of issues, i'm not some crazed stallmanite.) leave much to be desired.

I don't like that people in tech communities are so quick to defend him in general - but in the case of his management style he's broadly got it right.

you're thinking of steve jobs
>>
The article is not completely off the mark though. The business culture described is exactly what people can hate about job in programming. Most of my friends don't have the confidence/experience to do that, but they always think it when they review code, that some people should just be secretaries rather than developers. And they don't say it, because they don't want to get hated by the people they review the code of, since they need to work together in the company. I'd definitely hate a place where an older guy can just come and bitch around because things aren't done his way.

That said, I think the article forgets something really important which it states in the beginning. Linus Torvalds is not a boss. He set the tone at a time where business culture was still pretty aggressive, and the tone stuck around. More than blaming him, you should blame the cultural environment of twenty years ago. And honestly, I don't think the development practices should change as long as they're effective.

It's the exact other way round now since employers do not want to be accused of sexism. You have to be a minority now to get a good job easily.

If you think about it it would be a lot more logical to pick men over women, since women will most likely leave your company for months when pregnant.

Friendly reminder that goverment proxies and puppets are pushing for the removal of Linus Torvalds from the Kernel Development. The main reason is that they want to install someone willing to bend their way. All this BS about him being problematic is fud designed to remove him from power.

In the end of time
There was a man who knew the road
And the writing, was written on the stone

In the ancient time
An artist led the way
But no one, seemed to understand

In his heart he knew
The artist must be true
But the legend, of the rent was way past due

Well you think you'll be just fine...without me, but your mine!
You think you can, kick me out of the band

Well there's just one problem there
The band is mine
How can you kick me out...of what is mine

Without reading a line from that shit I can deduce that it's some SJW BS. If you can't compete then of course you will be fucked in the ass. If you go there they expect you to do shit. If you can't then there is no reason for you to be there, so they will tell you to fuck off. That's exactly how it should be and it's the correct way to do it.

>Skipping this whole thread.

This is why people split off and make their own shit, no?

Because, when someone disagrees, they are free to use their own abilities to make their own mark.

Every creative environment is "toxic" with egos, this is how they encourage variation and growth, as well as endless streams of drama.

Fuck "leaders" and "DNA", fuck the attempts at blackmail and policing, this is the same low-level shit from any forum or game, make your own mark or fuck off.

1. Treat women devs with same directness and irreverence as male devs = Misogyny

2. Violence against women = Misogyny

4. Violence against women = physically unsafe

Linus "Bootyblastin Feminists/White Knights" Torvalds
>>
>>51373673
There's a middle ground between being too nice and being unnecessarily hostile. It's called growing up. Mr Torvalds has the luxury of behaving exactly how he wants; I highly doubt he'd act that way if he were one of the people on one of the lower rungs of the ladder.

Yes, you can tell someone their results are bad. And yes, you can say it without throwing a tantrum. It has nothing to do with technical expertise and all to do with emotional maturity. YOU YUCKY STUPID POOPY-HEAD is not a mature utterance, regardless of the intelligence of the person uttering it.
>>
>>51391436
Except these fuckwads aren't anywhere near Linus' level of intellect.
>>
>>51391436
Yes. And Torvalds is walking it with perfect indifference.

What I'd like to know is how they could even stop him? It's open and free code, not some faceless company

I know /v/ blames these two games and the 360's existence but I'm just not sure you can blame that ecosystem for causing a decline, those games were fun and had depth to them. Ultimately it's social media and the internet's refinement that led to such accessibility which resulted in uninspired products being made for the lowest common denominator.

“I’m not a nice person, and I don’t care about you. I care about the technology and the kernel — that’s what’s important to me.”

"some people see this diatribe as evidence that Torvalds is a bad-tempered bully"

fuck yeah, like a boss

Oh look, another hit piece on Linus.
