Somebody from IBM.

They are quite pro Linux, it would be interesting to hear what they are working on and how they see future developments etc.

Donald E. Kluth (creator of LaTex back in 1978) Don't know if he's still around, though

I think that Donald Knuth did not create LaTeX. He created TeX. LaTeX is a macro package built on top of TeX by Leslie Lamport.

My mistake, you're perfectly right Harishankar, Knuth created Tex78, Lamport wrote a special version

of it which is called LaTex. The name Knuth sounds funny in French, I've always liked it

Anyway, I'd like to see one of these men interviewed
