You need to be a very good programmer to contribute to SQLite. Richard reveals why his code standards are so high

Michael Meeks (LXF 72, November 2005)
Once writing assembler games on Windows, now a staunch Gnome fan working on OpenOffice.org. We ask: why is OOo so slow?

Millionaire, space tourist and now Ubuntu founder. Mark explains why he's backing the distro, and its relationship with Debian

Gael Duval (LXF 70, September 2005)
Mandriva has gone from near collapse to success, and we ask its co-founder: how will the Conectiva and Lycoris mergers pan out?

Second only to Linus Torvalds in kernel hacking prowess, Alan certainly knows how to keep things calm in a flame war...

Michael Robertson (LXF 68, July 2005)
