The Linux Setup - Jorge Castro

Filed under
Linux
Software
Interviews
Ubuntu

Jorge’s a cool guy. I’ve previously linked to his post about bringing developers into the conversations end-users have about products. He’s passionate about Ubuntu, Linux, and the user experience. All of that comes through very strongly in his interview. Jorge links to a video about how he uses Unity, and the video is fascinating, in that Jorge really talks about how he works and the tools he uses to organize his work. Whether you like Unity, hate Unity, or don’t care about it, the video is a wonderful insight into Jorge’s work process — a process that will probably feel very familiar to a lot of us.

2. Why do you use Linux?

I’ve always bent towards alternative operating systems. When my friends had C64s, I had a TRS-80. When people ran MS-DOS on PCs, I was interested in DR-DOS. By the time I hit college in the early 90s I was on OS/2 and doing things Windows users could only dream about. It really wasn’t an accident that I would end up on Linux — it seems like a natural thing.
