"Alan Cox is a long-time Linux kernel hacker, Red Hat Software
employee, and general all-around great guy. More importantly, he's
one of the people that works behind the scenes to make Linux a
great product through his relentless efforts in improving and
enhancing the Linux kernel -- as evidenced by the numerous "ac"
monikers after kernel revisions."
"Linux Today Editor Paul Ferris caught up with Alan on the
LinuxWorld Expo show floor as the show was winding down. Here, Paul
and Alan discuss important issues: how free software is making a
difference in the world, what vendors are making a difference in
the Linux world, why the commercialization of Linux may not make a
difference in the larger scheme of things, and how Scrappy Doo
didn't make a difference in the Scooby-Doo ethos. For those of you
who would like to know what Alan is doing a day-by-day basis, he
keeps a diary online at www.uk.linux.org/diary/."
"LT: So you spend 10 hours a day doing Linux stuff....Do you
enjoy your day pretty much? Do you work at home?"
"Alan: Yes, I work at home. It's very rare that I'm with the Red
Hat people, maybe once a year."
