An open letter to Evgeniy Polyakov
Posted Dec 1, 2008 3:21 UTC (Mon) by giraffedata (subscriber, #1954)
The most important point to take from Evgeniy's response is a contradiction of something the article seems to imply: that Evgeniy got fed up with the kernel development process, performed an experiment to prove the LKML community isn't good enough for him, and decided to quit.
In fact, it appears that Evegeniy wasn't trying to get his code into the standard kernel and isn't mad at anybody. He was trying to get review of his code, did an experiment that showed he wasn't succeeding in getting it, so stopped trying to get it that way.
