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.

Bill Gates - I'd actually like a more "human" piece on Bill Gates; his retirement, his current activities, but also his view on the current OS market and the role of Microsoft in it (and indirectly, his ability to steer Microsoft within this area).

Steve Wozniak - how has he been doing?

A Qt developer - on C++ and the role of Qt in the changing OS demands.

An Internet Explorer developer - on HTML5, IE8 and the need to catch up.

A securemac.com representative - on Mac OS X security, the need for spyware and virus scanners.

I'd also like:

Former Be-engineers (preferably several simultaneously) - on their time at Be, Inc., their endeavours ever since, whether they have been able to find a working environment like the one at Be (it is said to be legendary, correct?), what their view is on BeOS and how they look back on it, what BeOS-inspired changes they have suggested for the projects they are working on (Spaces in OSX; PalmSource software shortly after the takeover; &c), what they think of Haiku now (do they like/dislike it, what are its chances/pitfalls) and what future they envision for BeOS/Haiku/legacy.
