The Adventures of Johnny Bunko

A friend recommended that I read “The Adventures of Johnny Bunko”, I read it and I loved it, thought I should share it with others too.

The Adventures of Johnny Bunko is America’s first business book in manga and the last career guide you’ll ever need.

The book, which you can read in an hour, tells the story of Johnny Bunko, a beleaguered Everyman toiling away at the Boggs Corp.

One night Johnny meets Diana, a magical and butt-kicking adviser who teaches Johnny — and you — the six lessons of satisfying, productive careers:

  1. There is no plan.
  2. Think strengths, not weaknesses.
  3. It’s not about you.
  4. Persistence trumps talent.
  5. Make excellent mistakes.
  6. Leave an imprint.

Linux Kernel Development: How Fast it is Going, Who is Doing It, What They are Doing, and Who is Sponsoring It

Nice article about Linux kernel development, the most interesting to me is the section “Why Companies Support Kernel Development”:

The list of companies participating in Linux kernel development includes many of the most successful technology firms in existence. None of these companies are supporting Linux development as an act of charity; in each case, these companies find that improving the kernel helps them to be more competitive in their markets.

and here is a list of companies supporting the development, and their contribution:

Thanks for all the individuals, and companies participating in the best OS ever (after FreeBSD that is 🙂 )
