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.

ian stuart? real name or reference to the neo-nazi?

I don't frequent this site, so I could be totally off base here, but "Ian Stuart", is that your real name or is that a reference to the famous neo-nazi of the same name?

If that's a reference to the neo-nazi musician Ian Stuart, then I think your opinion about whether or not Wil Wheaton is suspect for linking something to his website is pretty much moot.

Sorry if that's your real name - it just jarred me to see it on there.

And it seems that Altaire was directly referring to Wheaton, since he used the subject line "Wil are you a comunist?[sic]" It's hard to get more direct than that.
