LQ Radio Interview #1 - Tom Adelstein and Sam Hiser


I am happy to announce that the first in the LQ Radio interview series is now available. The interview features Tom Adelstein and Sam Hiser. Topics covered include an in-depth look at the Sun Linux strategy, current trends in the Linux market, thoughts on Novell and Red Hat, Linux OEM preloads, the importance of open document formats, Linux in emerging areas, Open Sourcing OS/2, Linux standards and much more. Total running time is 1:16. I'd like to thanks both Tom and Sam for participating.

The inaugural LQ Radio Show should be ready early next month, so stay tuned!

Excellent start

I enjoyed listening to the interview and look forward to more. The sound quality was good, but one of the participants had a weak connection and was hard to hear. If LQ records with a separate channel per person, then it would be possible for LQ to normalize the volume.

MP3 is great, but could we also get a show of support for Ogg Vorbis?

Turbocapitalist - unfortunately it's not one person per channel. Thanks for the feedback - we are working to improve the audio quality moving forward. I did create an ogg for the show, but it looks like I never uploaded it. The ogg will be available later today and will be made available for all future shows/interviews.

Hi Jeremy,

Like the new Airbus A380 which took flight for the first time over southern France this morning, LQRadio seems also to have had its own struggle to grace the air(waves)! I am happy to report that both seem to have been well worth the wait! Continuing the metaphor, let us hope that any minor technical glitches can be ironed out over the coming weeks and many more roll off the production line.

Bouquets

-Slick presentation - like the intro
-Knowledgeable, polite guests
-Good spread of questions
-Relaxed vibe, like college professors chewing the fat

Brickbats

-Agree with previous poster - levels didnt seem all equal but I understand the channel problem
-I'm getting spot on conversations on Skypeout, there has to be something playing funny there
-I was going to mention ogg whilst I was listening then the previous poster has already done so

Suggestion

-I'd like to see a few new linux users interviewed with a view to hearing their thoughts and frustrations on making the transition

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks for the suggestion Chris - we'll definitely keep it in mind for a future show.

Interview suggestion

Nothing new to add that hasn't been already mentioned.

I just wanted to suggest as a future interview: Mark Spencer, creator of Asterisk.

Thanks cbarbry. This brings up a good point - if anyone has any suggestions on who they'd like to see interviewed, feel free to post here. Also, the ogg file has now been posted.

I'd be curious to see interviews from 2 people:
Patrick Volkerding (once he's back to full health of course)
Linus Torvalds

scuzzman, I've tried to invite Patrick to do interviews on multiple occasions. He's a quite private person and tends to shy away from those types of things, which I have to respect.

Truly excellent, entertaning, interesting and well made conversation. It was really nice tp hear that you really were prepared to do the interview and knew what you talked about and managed to get really good insight from the interviewed people. This is something that is often not the case in radio and it really annoys me, so great work.

Excellent Show

Very good show. I really appreciate the length of the show being adequate enough to cover the subject AND provide some insight into the human beings being interviewed. Good job and keep the shows in depth ;-)

I agree here. I've only tried Linux once, but ended up uninstalling it due to the fact that I could not easily get my sound card (the infamous Audigy2 NX) to work properly. I am still interesting in Linux however and plan to try it again. I was a little reluctant at first to listen to a radio show about Linux and Open Source because I was told it would put my "cool" meter somewhere down near negative infinity, but I must say I'm glad I listened and I look forward to the next show .

My only complaint is that Sam's audio was very low in comparison to the other two and I had to turn up my volume just to hear him speak, then turn it down again so I wasn't blown out of the room, and there was some distortion on Tom's end.

Excellent interview. Good preparation and organization. (Unlike those Linux Links guys!)
