Hash: SHA1

The Buzztard Project, Part 2: an Interview with Stefan Kost

,----[ Quote ]
| This interview with lead developer Stefan Kost continues my report on the 
| development of Buzztard. As the interview reveals, Stefan's work on Buzztard 
| represents only one level of his deep involvement in Linux software 
| development.    


Interview: the return of the realtime preemption tree

,----[ Quote ]
| On February 11, realtime developers Thomas Gleixner and Ingo Molnar 
| resurfaced with the announcement of a new realtime preemption tree and a 
| newly reinvigorated development effort. Your editor asked them if they would 
| be willing to answer a few questions about this work; their response went 
| well beyond the call of duty. Read on for a detailed look at where the 
| realtime preemption tree stands and what's likely to happen in the near 
| future.       



My Interview With Richard Stallman.

,----[ Quote ]
| 3. Is there any future at all for software that isn't free?
| That depends on you! Specifically, whether you value your freedom enough to
| reject proprietary software. If you want to live in freedom, that's the way.
| You need to escape from proprietary software that would take it away from
| you. The purpose of the Free Software Movement, the reason we developed GNU,
| is to make a place to escape to.    


Interview: How a hacker became a freedom fighter

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the founding fathers of "free software" and an esteemed elder of the
| hacking community, Richard Stallman has made defending people's freedoms his
| life's work. That usually means supplying hackers with software and attacking
| copyright law. But as he tells Michael Reilly, his advocacy of personal  
| freedoms extends to the protection of true democracy and of the human rights
| increasingly being trampled on in the US and elsewhere    
| Is it true you used to live in your office?
| Yes it is. I lived there for half of the 1980s and most of the 1990s.
| What made you do that?
| It was convenient and cheap. To walk home to another place when I was sleepy
| was a very bad thing: first of all, if I was sleepy, it might take a couple
| of hours before I could get it together to put on my coat and my shoes and so
| on. And after that, walking home would wake me up, so when I got home I
| wouldn't go to sleep either. It was so much better to just be able to go to
| sleep where I was.
