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.

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

I use my real name, so it's not like I am the one hidding here, you don't see 0.00000001% of what I post and I am amongst the top thousand contributor of news story on OsNews,

BTW submnission is what got published , not what I submited.

Doesn't NSA use OpenBSD?

No , they review it.

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

No I mean an insecure OS nobody in the security industry use and no secure hardware maker support by default. The fact you constrain it to server only is showing of the real problem.

Through history there were many who were right about some subject and failed to convince others that they were wrong.

Sure, but it as nothing to do with BSD and their finance ...

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.

Actually, we can draw a direct paralel with linus Torvald who worked at a company who was not directly related to GNU/Linux , but using the Linux Kernel and GNU/Linux and himself to a certain degree where right, the GNU/Linux industry grew.

Time already proved he was wrong.

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

No Because he is wrong and that is what make him an Ass to other who are right and disagree with him. Being an ass don't prove him as right the state of BSD does prove him as wrong.

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

Actually if the dev are in charge of distribution that is a big problem in itself ...

How is Windows distributed?

Every single possible way.

BSD protection clause?

Yes, no one can put a license on someone else code.

What are you smoking?

Absolutly nothing.

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

Your talking about the three mainstream OS and there paid working people and corporation and industry as if any BSD had anything close or resembling it.

You are a living proof.

I am not a moron. You should look up the definition, it does not mean someone more inteligent then you , that you disagree with.

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

No , he never did. He said had BSD been legal and not in court for stealing UNIX at the tme, he would have chosend BSD over the GPL. But hey you must have a link to back up your quote, I could be wrong about that and you could show me soemthing real for a change.

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

BSD make bad code, everyone else innovate over time.

I don't understand this...

Don't try and suggest you understand something.

The world is bigger than that of what companies provide and market to you

Not discussing the world, just "Theo de Raadt".

If you are too stupid to look around, well...

No , I keep searching and there is nothing Theo De Raadt proved or that was right. He adopted others theory after bashing them at first ...

Oh, I understand you

Nope ...

I also have trouble finding quality printed good books

Too poor , too stupid , too incompetent and too clueless ... Or you believe yourself to be able to judge all book on it's merit, without having read most of them.

like those Best Sellers only very uninformed people read.

That's another thing, BSD distribution was done with books, most of them are not carried anywhere, even in specialised vendor catalog or they have very old copies.

Now I guess you enjoy rhetoric, except you are not good at it because you can't persuade anyone. I also know you are not good with actual argumentation. You remind me much of Thrasymachus.

I don't enjoy writting or discussing. I much prefer listening to inteligent discourse and read good people.

I don't need to persuade anyone nor do I try.
