@thomasfuchs No list of computer aesthetics would be complete without the Pixar Image Computer.
Before Linus, there was Dijkstra. The norm of equating technically proficiency with hostile arrogance has been part of CS since the start. Sad thing is, there are devs out there who feel, deep down, that you lose technical merit when you go soft. It’s such an unhealthy mindset.
Programming is frustrating, but it is for all of us. Why add onto that frustration by berating your colleagues?
👏 to this. My wife, mother, and mother in law are all primary school teachers. And I can tell you: the “school teachers have it easy because they finish work at 3 and get 12 weeks holiday a year” line is so utterly ignorant, it’s laughable.

So Alpine Linux has a pretty serious set of vulnerabilities because
- It doesn’t download packages over TLS, making them prone to MitM. Which on its own isn’t terrible but it also...
- Doesn’t check hashes before extracting to root (!)
- And uses custom gzip code which is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution (!!)
