Linus and old C++ friends

Funny, read more here (and especially all the comments) and dont miss the original post from Linus.

I especially like this part:
"Have you ever browsed the Boost library? Just building the thing requires a Ph.D. in compiler technology."

Why? Because I know one of the boost developers in person from our former company called "Phaidros" and I cant remember he had a Ph.D. in compiler technology. But one can write "hard to understand" code in any language, even Java, C# and Smalltalk ;)

Dietmar now works in GB and is still a crazy C++ guy. He once wrote an X11 server displaying on a Synaptics cPad while we were in Frankfurt and a minimal C++ Runtime Library. Crazy but cool...
