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 applaud Wil's effort to question the US govt. and to speak out about it. Just because the guy isn't the typical American Ass-Hole doesn't mean he's a communist. The US would just be another entity of the Commonwealth of Nations if it weren't for our tenacious attitude towards freedom, and now you want us to just forget all that and let people like GWB tell us what to do?

Being an advocate for freedom obviously isn't easy. On the one hand we've got the military protecting our physical properties, and on the other we've got scholars and politicians managing our right to live free. Without protest groups to guide the latter, it would be impossible for this country to be where it is today, and we're not even in that good a position.

How about the unions? Why don't you go down to a local office and start calling them a bunch of communists. Like those damn liberal teachers always trying to get better pay, right?

If anyone is the red communist it's those who'd attempt to discredit sites like by using a word like communist to describe it. If you can come up with a cogent argument as to why protest is bad then you should move to a small weak country where you can help install a government that's more up your alley. Until the US Constitution is thrown out the people at will be the true federalists, and YOU will be the ALWAYS be enemy.
