Original OSNews Interviews Wil Wheaton is not like most of the rest of the actors. He admits that he is a true geek, running Linux, enjoying programming, playing lots of computer games. Many of you will remember Wil portraying "Wesley Crusher" in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" TV series some years ago. Wil will reprise his role as Wesley in the "Star Trek X: Nemesis" movie, the tenth installment of the Star Trek movies, which is set to be released two days after the second "Lord of the Rings" movie, at the end of this year. In the interview following, Wil talks about his favorite computer games, the computers used on TNG, the future of computing in AI, his favorite Linux distros, PHP and more.

I've also been reading his site from time to time, and realized quickly how much cooler he is as a person, than the simple character most thought they knew him as from TNG.

I think he's given a lot of geeks inspiration in either role though, through his honesty, integrity, and dedication to the geek arts.

Yes, I'm a TNG fan. Can you tell?

Good interview Eugenia. Great job... ;)
