+Anselm R. Garbe is an Open Source hacker and
+founder of suckless.org.
+The suckless community was
+founded in 2002 in Germany.
+The suckless manifesto deplores the common tendency
+for "complex, error-prone and slow software [that] seems
+to be prevalent in the present-day software industry",
+and argues that a programmer's performance should not
+be measured by the number of lines of code he writes.
+In suckless.org, he created (or contributed to) many open source projects,
+most notable is:
+- dwm, dynamic window manager - very small and simple window manager - main
+source code file have only 2150LOC, all source code with configuration file,
+libraries, README, LICENSE, manpage etc. is only 27KB.
+- st, simple terminal - lightweight, simple, small terminal
+with 24-bit color support - main source code have only 2650LOC,
+all source code weights 48K.
+- sent - very lightweight and simple tool for converting plain text files
+(like this on picture before) to a presentation like this that you now
+watching. Source code of sent compiles to binary form and executes with
+presentation text file faster than bloated spyware called Microsoft
+PowerPoint executes alone, without compiling, without loading any
+suckless.org creates simple programs that
+follows the UNIX philosophy - do programs
+that are doing one things and does it well.
+Do programs that handles text streams,
+because it's universal interface.
