Debian Common Core

This interview with Bruce Perens is pretty interesting, and many good points were made. I know that I would love it if all of the Linux distributions did things the same way at the lowest levels. Of course, I’d also like the kernel developers to take security as seriously as the developers at OpenBSD, but first things first.

An interesting quote from the interview is this: "It used to be that there were lots of nuts with ideas in the world, but they were isolated nuts. In this day and age, there are no isolated nuts. You can always find in the world of the Internet 50 nuts just like you, and what do you call 50 nuts like you? A start-up company!"
