The mind behind Linux | Linus Torvalds

Published on May 3, 2016 2,160,982 views

Linus Torvalds transformed technology twice — first with the Linux kernel, which helps power the Internet, and again with Git, the source code management system used by developers worldwide. In a rare interview with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Torvalds discusses with remarkable openness the personality traits that prompted his unique philosophy of work, engineering and life. "I am not a visionary, I'm an engineer," Torvalds says. "I'm perfectly happy with all the people who are walking around and just staring at the clouds ... but I'm looking at the ground, and I want to fix the pothole that's right in front of me before I fall in."

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

    Nild Malindi 4 дня назад @Lets be human Lol that has nothing to do with this video, like at all. And by the way, the H1-B visa was the only tool the US had to gather the worlds brain in its territory, it wasnt illegal immigration. Most migrants are not highly skilled workers with amazing degrees, they're poor and most of them have no bachelors/masters/phds and work experience in fields that are not specialized. That visa was reformed starting in 2004, and two more times in 2008 and 2009. So if you wanna blame someone for sort of "pushing" the brain out of the country you might wanna consider Bush for starters and Obama which was the guy who closed the lid on this.

  • Hanro50
    Hanro50 3 месяца назад @Asia Acuna The Linux kernel is its own entity that shares design aspects with the Unix kernel. Its more accurate to say its Unix inspired then built from the Unix kernel's source code. While both will run similar programs, that's more because they share the same middleware rather than being binnery compatible.

    EldunMcLayan 9 месяцев назад You're absolutely right. If the companies would only go for the most advanced and technical superior product, the chances are high that most of them would be made proprietary. But they don't, the care about the software being free, alowing them to openly coloborate, adjust things as they need it and share their achievements with others. Being Free is the most important attribute in nowaday's UNIX world. Richard Stallman did important work for the community to realize that.

  • Ziggi Mon
    Ziggi Mon 3 месяца назад "I don't really like other people." -- this is absolutely normal for any geek. The reason people become are deeply involved in computing is because they like things more than people. Most highly talented programmers are loners, introverts, who's best friend is a dog or a cat. Most managers have no clue what makes a brilliant software developer tick, and bright creative people rarely succeed in a corporate environment. They are outcasts and often the first to be fired. And that's what amazing in this story that a prodigy like Linus Torvalds succeeded in his pursuits despite the adversarial environment. He surely didn't make billions of dollars like all those companies who used the results of his (and others like him) labors, but he is a happy man who is free to do what he likes.

    Isaac H. 2 недели назад Linus made the kernel, not an "OS". GNU existed before the Linux kernel. It was a project to create an "OS" that was based on free software (not as price but as usage). The project was missing a kernel, a centeral way to manage the hardware and software. (Would look up definition of a kernel for better understanding). As a bad metaphor, Linus created the drive chain for a car that was already mostly built.

  • c99kfm
    c99kfm 1 месяц назад "Good taste" in this way lies in the eye of the beholder, and that eye has been trained for different circumstances. In the kernel, performance is king, and avoiding a branch can save you precious nanoseconds. However, in your average software project, where coders come and go, maintaining a legible and easily understood codebase tends to trump minor performance gains. The comments help, of course, but the first example would be much easier to modify for someone new to the project or even the C language. Additionally, I'm a bit horrified at the lack of a halt condition if the list doesn't contain the element in question. Sure, if nobody ever misuses the function, that won't ever happen, and you shouldn't code for the lowest common denominator, but I much prefer belt and bracers. In this case, that might mean an additional branch PER ITERATION of the loop, which would be monstrous kernel-wise, but in most projects, easily catching that type of issue in the logs without too much debugging is really nice and cycles are cheap.
