Asa Dotzler of the Mozilla Foundation Interviewed


LQ Radio has interviewed Asa Dotzler of the Mozilla Foundation. In the interview, Asa covers how he got turned on to Open Source and Firefox, why the FF 1.1 release morphed into 1.5, where Firefox and the Mozilla Foundation are headed, his thoughts on IE7, and what browser he'd use if he couldn't use Firefox. He also gets into some detail about his recent comments about Linux on the desktop. Total running time is 1:21. A BitTorrent is available. You can also download the show directly (in mp3 and ogg format) or as a Podcast.

good article. Due to some background noise it felt like I was listening to a homey kitchentable conversation on a hot summer night with the fan spining. in the podcast the noise was also there and annoying, but less noticeable with the interview.
There were some sound glitches, particularly with Asa's voice, but hey, not that bad. Also, the friendly "game of catch" that I have come to expect was a little slow- meaning there was not much interaction between you guys, it was mostly monologue.

Just a couple of "constructive critisisms" (whatever that means- a nice word for complaining... )

Nice show. I really found it encouraging after an encounter with a real windows user this week- (note, this is not clueless people or highly knowlegeable people who like both.) this guy was a PAIN and man. We weren't even talking about linux- just firefox, how it is just for geeks like me and that IE blocks popups too. (however you have to install SP2 to get it... and firefox had it WAY before IE did)

anyway- it made me feel better to listen to the show. THANKS for taking the time to put this together jeremy.

Ohh yeah- after upgrading to 1.0.6 (firefox) I had to hit shift refresh to fix the fonts again....
