Interview with Con Kolivas

A very interesting interview with kernel developer Con Kolivas, who decided to quit hacking:

I have to say that most of his points concerning the lack of desktop-user centric kernel development are very insightful and understandable. Yet it’s kind of a no-brainer that those things get updated and developed which give Linux some money or whatever. Thus the server focused features are more important and have a higher preference.

But let’s see how this might eventually change with deals like Dell has with Ubuntu spreading out.
