‘Cool it, Linus’ – Bruce Perens April 16, 2005

Posted by rjdohnert in Software reviews.

Looks like Bruce Perens has a problem with Linuses stand on this issue with the Bitkeeper source repository. This is one of the few times I agree with Linus, Trigell did knowingly and maliciously (in my opinion) try to rip-off and reverse engineer anothers IP and try to knowingly and malicously (in my opinion) try to introduce said code into an Open Source project. As for Perens comment “the closed source tool was foisted on kernel developers despite the consensus that it was inappropriate for a GPL project.”, Its Linuses project, he is the manager, he can use whatever goddamn tool he decides to use. I hope Linus takes a license and continues to use Bitkeeper. As for perens, Im going to offer him some advice, “cool it”
