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.

Ask them about the tools they use and the equipment they have.
Ask about other OSs and what they think about them.

Don't ask about the history or other lame shit that is in every interview/wikipedia.

Ask questions nobody has asked before. I know it is hard, but otherwise it is not worth doing.

Maybe have a Digg dialogue like question post where people vote question up and down with their comment votes.

Interview people that are central to each OS (Theo, Linus, Haiku devs etc) and also people who are just interesting like Valerie Aurora.
