Think kernel modules from random companies are bad? Wait until you see their microcontroller code.

@mansr Thank you very much. I've had my fair share.

Worst was probably someone building a million loc c++ library in the style of one would do java... for small 32bit µCs (think production of millions of devices per year, where every cent counts)....Yet the smallest binary size one could produce was 30k...

Second worst was probably someone reimplementing printf. While not bad in itself, they choose to redefine the format string syntax. IIRC only %i and %s were kept.
