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.

Yeah. I was just thinking to myself earlier that it would be really cool to have an OSNews interview where the answer to every question, no matter what the topic, is a long tirade about how Linux is crap.

As a Linux advocate, I spend a fair number of words criticizing those with irrational *BSD hatred. This is a chance for me to point out that the hatred does sometimes come from the other camp.

On a different note... why not get RMS and Theo together and let them interview each other?

sbergman27 is a thing ( that's not his real name ) who think of himself as Linux advocate ( when clearly he is not ) and speaking for a group of non existing people. Most real Linux advocate , of witch I am not BTW, don't know who he is or what he is speaking for ( I asked just to be sure it was not some new guy having fun at my expense or with a real point ).

You spend a fair number of words bashing and insulting those who you disagree with but don't understand there point at all.

with missundertsood BSD real point.

There is no hatred or camp, GNU/Linux and BSD developer get to work toghether everyday, the real problem is Thing like you who create camp and hatred out of there false view of the world. Who refuse to face reality that in both camp some problem exist and that you refuse everyone discuss them , because somehow , in your mind of singleton and moron, you got put in charge of who get to say what and when.

Me I am for getting an interview about who the real sbergman27 is.

Well, moul. (No 'y', you see.) Your post probably violates the OSNews terms of service. (And reminds me a bit of the stunt that cost Maureen O'Gara her career.) And I probably shouldn't even bother responding. But... as has been pointed out by others, I include my name, of which my user name is a contraction, in my profile. But if you really want to know who I am, in the context of the topics relevant to this forum... read my posts. I make plenty of them. And with a few exceptions (regarding issues on which I have turned out to be wrong or mistaken) I stand behind what I say.

By the way... I notice that you do not provide a full name anywhere. Not in your profile. And not in your posts. The ambiguous and impossible to verify 'Moulinneuf' is all you have ever provided. You *do* have first and last names up there in Canada, don't you? Sadly, however, we do know you through your posts here.

you are so....not cool for playing that game. People shouldn't be pressured to give up their privacy on the internet just to make you happy.

What is happening to you "molino nuevo"?

I saw you in other thread attacking *BSD in general and sbergman27 in particular... did he take your girlfriend? did he owe you money? are you in love of him and do you want him to pay attention on you?

why don't you let him in peace (in particular) and all of us (in general)? do you know to do something different to bash everything and troll it?

He doesn't really do that all that much.
He's actually turned it down quite a bit in later years compared to the mid 90's.

It does come from all camps really but Theo isn't a good example of hatred.
