"The Hacker Attitude Hackers solve problems and build things, and they believe in freedom and voluntary mutual help. To be accepted as a hacker, you have to behave as though you have this kind of attitude yourself. And to behave as though you have the attitude, you have to really believe the attitude. But if you think of cultivating hacker attitudes as just a way to gain acceptance in the culture, you'll miss the point. Becoming the kind of person who believes these things is important for you [...] not just intellectually but emotionally as well. So, if you want to be a hacker, repeat the following things until you believe them: ..."

Hackers != Crackers & spam

This text is a must read, but it's ironic to find it here. This site is filled of links to bad proprietary software; it's just spam hoping to confuse you!

Not agreed

AFAIK this article (actually part of full one) is written by ESR himself. He can not be wrong. I slightly dislike open-source movement, as I support free software one. But I respect ESR very much - he is a real hacker.

I didn't find anything wrong here. There are no links in *article*. Just good recommendations to really free software (closing eyes on using Linux instead of GNU/Linux). Maybe there are links on site itself, but it is another subject.

I agree with you

> Maybe there are links on site itself, but it is another subject.

That's what i wanted to point out. ESR & RMS are true hackers, and ESR himself is an Emacs lover. This article is a must read, but this site may be confusing... I realized that once the story has been posted...

Understand

Well, I didn't understant you then. You are fully right. As for me - I never look at everything around an article :-). Many sites can be confusing, but contain good things. From your point of view - I fully agree, sorry for misunderstanding.

This article is very important.

I totally agree with this article.


4. Freedom is good.Hackers are naturally anti-authoritarian. Anyone who can give you orders can stop you from solving whatever problem you're being fascinated by -- and, given the way authoritarian minds work, will generally find some appallingly stupid reason to do so. So the authoritarian attitude has to be fought wherever you find it, lest it smother you and other hackers.

This is a great point.
