Mark Shuttleworth has flown into space on a Soyuz TM-34 and founded Thawte Consulting that later sold to Verisign for over $500 million, but he is now known most for being the founder and leader of the Ubuntu Linux distribution. In addition to Ubuntu he also established HBD Venture Capital and is involved with several other free software projects. Earlier today we had spoke with Mark Shuttleworth to discuss the latest happenings in the Ubuntu world including Dell shipping Ubuntu PCs, getting open-source drivers from hardware vendors, and what is coming down the road for Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon.
I think Mark is pretty realistic with his points of view and estimations. His comment on games on Linux and that most of those people, who are still adventurous and willing to try something new are also those that play a lot of games, sure hit the spot.
And my favourite part:
Phoronix: Out of all of your achievements up to this point, what would you consider the most rewarding?
Mark: Staying unmarried.
The interview is a great read! Thanks Phoronix and thanks Mark Shuttleworth!
