  • It's a nice thought. OS doesn't necessarily yield better programs, but better programmers.

    But the environment in which we develop software today vs. a few decades ago is different in more important ways than that. Just imagine not having that Internet thingy available. At all.

    No more googling for error messages, no FAQs, no quick answers to basic questions, no more interesting online discussion. Just you, alone in your cave, making the same mistakes as everyone else, only not knowing about it.

    In that environment, open source development would probably be a pretty isolated affair, and the only place where you could meet better programmers to learn from would be companies and universities.
