Interview: Alistair Crooks, President of the NetBSD Foundation

For a couple of months, the french speaking NetBSD advocacy group, NetBSDfr has started a series of interviews called “Discussing with a NetBSD developer”. The first developer that has been interviewed was Soren Jacobsen, NetBSD 5.0 release engineer, shortly after NetBSD 5.0 was released. In July, we had the opportunity to talk to Adam Hamsik, known for porting LVM and ZFS to the NetBSD OS. S.P. Zeidler was our third victim, one of the Project’s admins and member of the pkgsrc-releng team. This month, we had the chance to interview Alistair G. Crooks, actual president of The NetBSD Foundation. Alistair gave us a unique historical point of view as one of NetBSD’s early hackers. He also shared with us his thought about the future of NetBSD and explained what makes this operating system so special.
