Chattin' with Glynn Foster of GNOME Indiana
By barton808 on Nov 16, 2007
Here is my second interview from Sun's internal FOSS summit.
Glynn once shot an OS in Auckland just to watch it die.
Glynn, a former emerald islander, switched hemispheres about four years ago and now calls New Zealand home. From his outpost down-under (and to the right) he serves in several capacities within Sun and the community:
- Director on the GNOME Foundation's board
- OpenSolaris Governing Board member
- Product Manager of Project Indiana
Some of the topics we tackle:
- Growing up GNOME
- How the first Open Solaris summit went
- Indiana's roadmap
- Studying pure mathematics at Trinity (was Glynn the one who solved Fermat's last theorem?)
- Getting to the mindset of a time-based release
Pau for now...
