I do not agree with everything ESR has said, but I linked to the relevant posts which I found of value from him. Other insightful (IMO, YKMV) resources of his are: * http://catb.org/~esr/writings/cathedral-bazaar/ * http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html * http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=4229 * http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=7724 * http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Unix-and-Internet-Fundamentals-HOWTO/ * http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DocBook-Demystification-HOWTO/ * http://www.catb.org/esr/writings/taoup/ So I think he's not all bad (though his style often leaves a lot to be desired). There are similar collective ad hominems voiced against https://www.joelonsoftware.com/ or whoever. I think the rest of your post has some value. -- ----------------------------------------------------------------- Shlomi Fish http://www.shlomifish.org/ https://github.com/sindresorhus/awesome - curated list of lists Who would win in a fight?
