And he quotes….
<em> Btw, and you may not like this, since you are so focused on security, one reason I refuse to bother with the whole security circus is that I think it glorifies - and thus encourages - the wrong behavior. </em>
<em> It makes "heroes" out of security people, as if the people who don't just fix normal bugs aren't as important. </em>
<em> In fact, all the boring normal bugs are _way_ more important, just because there's a lot more of them. I don't think some spectacular security hole should be glorified or cared about as being any more "special" than a random spectacular crash due to bad locking. </em>
<em> Security people are often the black-and-white kind of people that I can't stand. I think the OpenBSD crowd is a bunch of masturbating monkeys, in that they make such a big deal about concentrating on security to the point where they pretty much admit that nothing else matters to them. </em>
<em> To me, security is important. But it's no less important than everything *else* that is also important! </em>
<em> Linus </em>
