Cool Things :: John and Robert interviewd by distrowatch
Distrowatch weekly interviewed John and Robert this week. Read the interview at: http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20060508#interview
Nice interview John and Robert. I liked John's comment about the 12yr old eating pizza in reference to bloat.
That should be a must-read for anyone wanting to understand the philosophy of DSL. Might be good to link that interview in the wiki.
The puppy defenders rushed to defend but I didn't see that RS or John said anything bad about puppy. Two different OS's with two different approaches.
I'm glad both guys mentioned about the $100 laptop program. I know Red Hat has their fingers in it but, man, getting John and RS involved seems to be a no-brainer to me to get this thing into the market in a reasonable amount of time.
I did see some 'talk' in the postings appearing to be defending puppy.
Some mention about "running in ram" ( hello?) and the applications
included.. but not much defense mentioning the points RS made..
I wouldn't have picked THAT distro to make comparisons to DSL anyway.
Nice to see some exclusive action at DW !
"John and I have discussed offering only a tiny "app-less" core. This would then solely rely on our infrastructure to have the distro totally your way."
it would be pretty great!!! Just keep going on that interesting way with modular DSL-Sized images. Pretty nice interview.
I guess I should have scrolled down a little further cuz I just posted the same link to the interview. DOH!
Good reading and well deserved recognition.
