Re: to recurse is godly
Yep, unstable "geniuses" like Stallman and Torvalds
Personally, I wouldn't put these two together and neither would I call them "geniuses".
Torvald, saw a need and went with it, he has shown much stubborn determination to keep Linux going and become what it is today. However, he has adapted as Linux has developed and become more mainstream.
I'm less certain about what Stallman has achieved since his early works on free software.
Having worked with both types of people in IT, I am more comfortable with Torvald's personality as I understand where his motivation and passion lies.
