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.

I can't get enough info about hobby OSes, mostly because this is one of the only sources for information about them.

Higepon from Mona OS.
Durrand Miller from Spoon Micro Kernel (SMK).
Wim from (the no-longer-under-development) Triangle OS.
Vanders, Kaj or others from Syllable.
Aleksey Bragin from ReactOS.
Anyone from Haiku (are there people associated with Haiku or is it an amalgamated super-person? I haven't followed the mailing lists lately).

Many have been interviewed before, some more or less recently, and they are always a different kind of insightful!

I second this list!

A very good selection of developers from some very cool projects!

(Edit) - I see that MonaOS has just had a major new release, so that's even more of a reason to interview Higepon... ;)

Definitely! I spoke with him a few times a few years ago. A very genuine guy. The NewOS website still says copyright 2005 and the last mailing list activity was June 1st, 2008, and even by that point it had been a handful of messages every year for a while.

Isn't NewOS the kernel for Haiku?
