Ben Hutchings is a rather unassuming guy… but hiding behind his hat, there’s a real kernel hacker who backports new drivers for the kernel in Debian stable so that our flagship release supports very recent hardware.
Raphael: Who are you?
Ben: I’m a professional programmer, living in Cambridge, England with my long-suffering wife Nattie. In Debian, I mostly work on the Linux kernel and related packages.
Raphael: How did you start contributing to Debian?
Ben: I started using Debian in 1998 and at some point I subscribed to Debian Weekly News.
