Original OSNews Interviews In the past, OSNews' interview volume was quite a bit higher than it has been lately. I had the pleasure of having lunch with Eugenia and her husband last week, and she mentioned that we haven't done as many interviews, and that in the past they were always very popular. So I decided that I'm going to make it a personal priority to publish more interviews. I'd like to crowdsource the idea, and ask the OSNews community who they'd like to see us interview. Please let us know in the comments of this story who you'd like us to talk to, and what specific questions you'd like us to ask. Shoot for the moon. It's not as hard to get an email-based interview as you might think. Obviously OS-world luminaries will always be a priority, but feel free to recommend people from the larger tech community, or even geek-oriented popular culture.

Would be interesting.

So, I'm not allowed to edit the comment title? I meant Ballmer, with two l's.

Why?
Do you think that Microsoft's products need more exposure?

Of course not. I'm interested in his perspective, not his products.

I'm not interrested in Ballmer, but I am interrested in something Ballmer ones said: developers, developers, developers.

I would like to see more interviews with developers.

I'd also suggest Steve Jobs.
But I've a feeling that OSNews isn't large enough to land either of those interviews.

I also thought of Simon Peyton Jones and Miguel De Icaza.

Bill Gates - I'd actually like a more "human" piece on Bill Gates; his retirement, his current activities, but also his view on the current OS market and the role of Microsoft in it (and indirectly, his ability to steer Microsoft within this area).

Steve Wozniak - how has he been doing?

A Qt developer - on C++ and the role of Qt in the changing OS demands.

An Internet Explorer developer - on HTML5, IE8 and the need to catch up.

A securemac.com representative - on Mac OS X security, the need for spyware and virus scanners.
