LQ Interview Series - who would you like to see interviewed?


We'd like to revive the LQ Interview Series with regularly posted interviews, and we're interested in who you'd like to see interviewed. Let us know in this thread and we'll see if we can make it happen. Once someone has agreed to an interview, we'll post to get feedback on what questions you'd like asked. Visit http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/interviews-28/ for past interviews.

Torvalds and Stallman

In the same thread or interview. It would be a killer Opensource motivator.

Klaus Knopper, Patrick Volkerrding, Linus Torvalds.

As for Volkerding, in researching his creating Slackware, I found out he did it about 2 miles away fron where I live! (at MSUM) How cool is that!

The usual suspects: Pat Volkerding and Linus Torvalds.
I'm not a big fan of RMS.
