Skolelinux interview: Arnt Ove Gregersen

Interviews

Inspired by the round of interviews that Raphael Hertzog has started with people in the Debian project, I wanted to do the same with people in the Skolelinux project . The hope is that those who every day helps to promote free software in schools and develop a Linux distribution designed specifically for skolebruk may be better known and perhaps inspire many to contribute to the Skolelinux project.

First is the newly elected leader of the association FRISK that organizes the development of the Skolelinux distribution.

How did you connect with the Skolelinux project?

I was at a presentation of the project under the auspices of Knut Yrvin Gløshaugen in Trondheim, where I made a lot of interest for the project and would help as best I could. This was probably in 2002 or 2003.

I had already heard about the project before and thought the idea behind was very nice, but had no interest in using my own time on it though.

It's not the best looking out there, but it gets the job done.

  • Semi-Official Google Drive Support For Linux Arrives, What's Next?
    Three years ago, when a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client, Google would bring them to the appropriate download page, which of course, is based off of the operating system that user is running on. If a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client while running on Linux, they’d land on a page where the message reads: “Not (yet) supported for Linux.” So, what’s the deal with Google not developing a sync client for Linux users, seeing as to how they build a lot of their things using Linux? There’s one simple answer to that, unfortunately. Windows is mainstream, so a lot of their focus is put on what a majority of people use. The bigger the market, the more money in their pockets, of course. But don’t fear, change is near!
