Through OSNews I found an interview in apcmag (which I’d never heard of before) with Con Kolivas, a Linux kernel developer, who has decided to leave Linux development entirely. The interview discusses how he became involved, what he did, and why he left. His explanations have a lot of good insight into the problems both with the development of the Linux kernel, as well as OS development over the past 13 years or so as well. It’s quite interesting.
