Linus Torvalds pulls pin, tosses in grenade: x86 won, forget about Arm in server CPUs, says Linux kernel supremo

Ima Ballsy
FAIL

What he really said was:

We spoke about these issues afterwards via e-mail and Torvalds doubled down on the need for ARM PCs. Torvalds said: "my argument wasn't that 'ARM cannot make it in the server space' like some people seem to have read it. My argument was that 'in order for ARM to make it in the server space, I think they need to have development machines.'

See:

Sorry El REg ....

Here's why your next network switch, storage box, or 5G gateway may do more Arm than good: E1, N1 data-center CPU cores aim at future kit

Re: "knowledge that cheaper millennials lacked"

True story:

Years ago (around 2008 time frame), I was working on a self project to create a ISAM multi value database (thing nosql type ). I was working thru all the b-tree theories and was debating whether or not to have leaf node records or external block store records.

I decided to post my results and ask for anyone that wanted to help, on some forums I belonged to.

One of the millennial's posted back

"why do you want to do something so ancient as ISAM / b-tree, you should write the project in SQL !"

AT that point I decided that they AIN'T teaching theory any more in school ...

Along the same vein ...

Time 1991, had just been laid off due to restructuring (ie Retail Company had to find budget money to bring EDS in)

8 of us let go out of 30 or so.

The remaining crew were had gotten out of being 'on call" because "we are female and it's a bad part of town" or "We are working on the new systems and we shoudln't have to work on the old programs" ..etc..etc.blah blah blah. Guess who remained on the on-call list- yup the 8 of us that got laid off.

Anyway, the layoffs occurred at 4PM on a Friday.

On following Tuesday morning at 2 AM got a call from operations "We got an error on xyz job, you need to come in and fix it"

Me: no can do, been laid off.

Them: Well I guess we can call Joe then.

ME: Nope, he got laid off too.

Them: What should we do?

Me: Call the bosses' boss and tell them no one is on call anymore ...

Looking back I should have done the standard SOP :

"HEY, restore all the backups from 5PM yesterday and I will be in to fix things", and then

rolled over and went back asleep and when they called again, apologize - " oh I must have dozed off' and kept the ruse up till the remaining crew

showed up in the morning - but I didn't.

"The Oracle founder also warned his disciples to be wary of new technology that would offer a new solution to their customers' problems.

"The old solution to customers' problems may no longer be the best solution. When you see that, it's an opportunity – or a threat," he was reported to have said."

If the bastards have found better solutions, at a lower cost, you best put the FEAR of god in them so our revenue stream will not be impacted ...
