I saw the rules on how to type code for UNITY project or GNU software in general.
Why do they write code in such an ugly form? Is there a particular reason why they don't put brackets the way (from what I know) most people do?

Why like this:

for (i = 0; i < 5; i++)
//do something

and not like this:

for (i = 0; i < 5; i++)
//Do something

or this:

for(i = 0; i < 5l i++) {
//Do Something

I shouldn't even ask this question. The nature of the question was about an actual reason and not just taste. I guess GNU guys just want to be different and that's what they did by putting the brackets in a way that I consider ugly. As for an answer (if I want change, then bring it on) I don't want change cause I use a style that most people do. It makes it easy for me to read their code and easy for them to read mine. When it comes to change I would prefer if possible to bring it in essential stuff and not change how people write code just because.

I guess it all boils down to taste. I can't accept any answer cause no answer was an actual answer.

I guess there's no reason for it, just taste.
