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.

Actually , I am all for interviewing Theo de Raadt,
he is like the sbergman27, Glenn Beck and Rush limbaugh of the world, the more you get them to talk the more there true insanity and nonsense get to shine, you also get to identify there sheep follower who all follow in tow.

Security ? Why do no BSD are used in security or armed forces ?

Kernel ? Why is it that most device don't work with it or have people trying to support it.

Finance ? Why is it that he need to work for a company who's main goal is not his project, if he his always right ?

Man power ? Why is it that most people that use to work with him are almost on the verge of getting restraining order to not have to deal with him ...

Distribution ? Why is it that even do BSD is older by 2 decade, you felt the need to do worst then your predecesor in term of distribution ?

License: Why if BSD protection clause is so good is he using something else lately for is own project and code ?

Is own people : Why are all the moron who do nothing , contribute nothing, pay for nothing and are afraid to use there real name supporting BSD in writting but not in actions ?

Free Driver ? Why does he use BSD the known worst maker of Free Driver ( almost all of them are closed and proprietary ), why can't he put project togheter and pay for it or lea dthe roject himself.

Linus Thorvald was right in saying his kernel would not amount to much if he was the one to work on it alone so he got others to help and switched license to the GPL ...

Bill Gates was right in saying paying developer is going to accelerate development.

Steve Jobs was right in saying if you give people what they want now you will always be behind the curves.

Theo de Raadt ... Was right ... In your fantasy and sci-fi bubble world sure ...

That's why I can't find NEtBSD or OpenBSD computer in any store Locally, provincially, fedrally, OEM and on the internet they are a pain to locate as the store close faster then they open.

Sure let's interview him only question about BSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD.

It's also easy to identify you among other people as you are always posting in a very negative way.

Security ? Why do no BSD are used in security or armed forces ?


Doesn't NSA use OpenBSD?

Kernel ? Why is it that most device don't work with it or have people trying to support it.


You mean a secure server OS needs support for fancy webcams?

Finance ? Why is it that he need to work for a company who's main goal is not his project, if he his always right ?


Through history there were many who were right about some subject and failed to convince others that they were wrong. Still they had to eat and care of their families, so it's not a big deal if the man does what it does to provide. Time will tell who's right.

Man power ? Why is it that most people that use to work with him are almost on the verge of getting restraining order to not have to deal with him ...


Because he's an ass? That doesn't prove him wrong.

Distribution ? Why is it that even do BSD is older by 2 decade, you felt the need to do worst then your predecesor in term of distribution ?


There are many BSDs, all of which are distributed in different ways, as they devs see fit. How is Windows distributed?

License: Why if BSD protection clause is so good is he using something else lately for is own project and code ?


BSD protection clause? What are you smoking?

Is own people : Why are all the moron who do nothing , contribute nothing, pay for nothing and are afraid to use there real name supporting BSD in writting but not in actions ?


For the same reason that there are morons in Linux, Windows, OS X, etc. There are morons everywhere. You are a living proof.

Linus Thorvald was right in saying his kernel would not amount to much if he was the one to work on it alone so he got others to help and switched license to the GPL ...


He also said that he wouldn't have started Linux if he knew about FreeBSD existence.

Bill Gates was right in saying paying developer is going to accelerate development.


Accelerating development at the cost of bad code isn't a good idea. Usually the best teams are more compact.

Steve Jobs was right in saying if you give people what they want now you will always be behind the curves.


I don't understand this...

Theo de Raadt ... Was right ... In your fantasy and sci-fi bubble world sure ...


The world is bigger than that of what companies provide and market to you. If you are too stupid to look around, well...

That's why I can't find NEtBSD or OpenBSD computer in any store Locally, provincially, fedrally, OEM and on the internet they are a pain to locate as the store close faster then they open.


Oh, I understand you. I also have trouble finding quality printed good books, as publishers seem to print shit these days, like those Best Sellers only very uninformed people read.

Wow, talking about relevancy. Now I will grant you that. But fanboy, be sure I'm not. I don't care about de Raadt, nor Torvalds, nor Stallman. But he was usually right on the spot on his comments.

Of course, a Linux fanboy like you doesn't like him for his attacks on the quality of the linux kernel, quality that even Linus said it's decreasing. Now, was TDR so wrong?
