'Just like Sarah Sharp, Linux developer Matthew Garrett has gotten fed
up with the unprofessional development culture surrounding the kernel.
"I remember having to deal with interminable arguments over the naming
of an interface because Linus has an undying hatred of BSD
securelevel, or having my name forever associated with the
deepthroating of Microsoft because Linus couldn't be bothered asking
questions about the reasoning behind a design before trashing it,"
Garrett writes. He has chosen to go his own way, and has forked the
Linux kernel and added patches that implement a BSD-style securelevel
interface. Over time it is expected to pick up some of the power
management code that Garrett is working on, and we shall see where it
goes from there.'
