Linus Thorvalds replies to a guy that thinks he should have built git in C++
This git-related story is probably old to all you hardcore gitters, but for me (n00b as I am) it was a brand new and hilarious read. To really appreciate it, first read up on some background information about why git was created in the first place.
After git was released and worked really, really well, a brave soul decided to stepp up and criticize the decision to build git in C instead of C++. He was pretty full of himself, which makes Linus reply amazing.
