One day I would like to put all open-source operating systems developers in one room and put one single slide on the screen:
"There is only one Donald Knuth and you are not him.
And no, you are not even Brian Kerninghan or Dennis Ritchie¹.
Learn to manage your ego."
¹ I have actually met dmr as an 8 yr old child and asked him to explain printf() varargs to me² which he did in the kindest, gentlest, non-condescending way.
² Yes, I was taught C & Lisp aged 6. Explains things, right?
